That's the White Tower behind the father type -- where the armory and things like King Henry VIII's suits of armor are. (The father type is holding an audio tour device. We took audio tours both here and at Westminster Cathedral.)
And of course we had to see the crown jewels.
Which, of course, you can't take pictures of.
Very fun to see though. And to see the Tower Guards.
It was a thrill after all these years of reading about it, to see the Traitor's Gate. And the spot where people like Ann Boleyn were executed.
And of course, right outside the Tower is Tower Bridge!
Why is it that in pictures, you don't notice all the blue??
Last pic of the Tower.
We stopped outside the Tower for lunch/dinner. A very authentic chicken and mushroom pie. Yum!
Up on the Bridge.
Then to St. Paul's.
We walked out onto Millenium Bridge.
The Shard from the bridge.
Saw the Globe Theatre from afar.
And yes, I was knitting too.
My version of a sock yarn blanket -- those Mad Tosh unicorn tails will be scattered throughout.
