Tower of London
Payed a visit to "Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress" or the Tower of London for short yesterday, can't remember visiting it properly since i was a wee lad but had a great few hour in the place.
The Crown Jewels are stored here too which are incredible! Over 45 tonnes worth of old and who know how many jewel.
The white tower above, the first original castle built by William the Conqueror in 1078, not personally.
Yeoman or better know as a "beef-eater" Simon giving a guided tour, very entertaining fellow.
The second wall i think with Longhorn tower.
If the Raven's ever leave the tower, legend has it the Kingdom will fall. They ain't shy.
Trebuchet in the old moat
Various cannon and plenty of arms in the tower and grounds.
No idea what theses parts are called but very medieval.
Royal crown and flag on the top for all to see in the old days.
From the south bank.
