    Mini-mini trip to London!

    I mean mini!
    I only went to the Tower of London and Kensington Gardens, and didn't take many photos, but thought I'd post the ones I did cos I'm nice.





    The iconic White Tower, which most people think of when they hear 'Tower of London'.







    Me in front of Traitor's Gate, where prisoners would enter the Tower from the River Thames by boat. Famous users of this Gate include Elizabeth I as Princess Elizabeth, and her father's fifth wife Catherine Howard.
    See; not many at all. I'm sorry.
    I'm off to bed.

    Re: Mini-mini trip to London!

    I was in London over the holidays. It was my second trip and I LOVE IT there. Thank you for sharing the pictures.

    One of the things I love about London is that there history in every corner. Just walking up the street you seem to run into something!
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    I did indeed. They're huge! Like, cockerel size!


    I so wished I could have showed you some of the Jewel Tower. This is where they keep the Royal Crown Jewels, the most valuable jewel collection on Earth. You pass by the Jewels on a conveyor belt, and they are contained within six-inch thick glass. But just as amazing are the vault doors - nearly a metre thick. You pass through these to see the jewels and they are just frightening. Unfortunately, all photography was banned inside the Jewel Tower, not just the actual Jewel Vault.
