I’m not sure how to do the Tower of London the justice it quite deserves in my woeful prose, or indeed within the length of a blog post. If you are an anglofile, a history buff, love london, a fan of knights, like your history with a side of gore, want to be a princess, love jewellery… go. Schedule a half day, and go.
Did I mention that the British Crown Jewels reside here? They are stunning.
Did also I mention you can buy a suit of armour here? The perfect gift for the man who has everything.
One of the reasons why I love London – the old nestled with the new.
The obligatory Raven pose shot;
It is around £20 for an adult to go (at the time of writing) but if you use the trains, Days out Guide often runs 2 for 1 specials, subject to you having used the train services (not OysterCard), providing proof of ticket and you have to print out a wee sheet.
I’d strongly advise you go early in the day to try beat the crowds, or go like we did on a miserably grey day.
How are you spending your Christmas/New Year break, or are you having to work? I can’t believe how quickly it’s going past.
