London - Tower of LondonAugust 9, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C
Went in to the Tower -- more like castle -- of London (pro tip: don't leave your student ID card behind in the hostel >.<).
I particularly liked the Line of Kings and armor displayed in the White Tower. Besides being interesting to see the changing styles of armour, it's astounding to be that this has been a tourist attraction for hundreds of years. Note the king's armour that was possibly compensating for something...
Also got to see the crown jewels (pretty! so much wealth! no photography), torture tools, and a restored/recreated king's living quarters.
Once again, traditional guards + modern guns = creepyRead more
