More of London

What visit to London would be complete without a visit to the Tower of London? We got into the city early which gave us quick access. We headed to see the Crown Jewels before the crowds built up.


This is the second time I have seem the Crown Jewels but they never fail to impress. (Photo from Internet)

To represent the animals that used to be kept there some creative models have been made. These ones look like they are made of chicken wire.



What a cheeky bottom


Jackson took the opportunity to get close to a soldier in a Busby 

We were lucky enough to see the changing of the guard. The shorter soldier on the right seemed to be getting a right ticking off from the officer. Apparently his uniform was not quite correct. Fronts not lined up and belt not straight. Tsk tsk!

We walked the wall and got this great view of the Tower of London bridge.

Some people are lucky enough to live within the Tower walls. These houses are for the Doctor and the Chaplin.

These house are for the Beefeaters. Isn't it sweet how they plant lots of flowers around. 

Magical times in London. More to come soon.....
