Tower of London

03 June 2014

I had been to the Tower of London once, back in 2011.
I absolutely loved it, and knew I had to take my family there when they came to visit.
Built by William the Conqueror in the 1070s, it was used throughout the ages as both a palace and a prison. Some of England's most notorious people in history lived and died there (Anne Boleyn for example).

The most striking feature about the Tower of London (besides it's incredible age) is it's location in modern day London. It's amazing to see such a modern skyline while standing in a thousand year old fortress.

Because I had already visited once,
I didn't seem to take many pictures.
Oh well!

Happy Tuesday!

Travel Tuesday


  1. I love the contrast between the old and new. Many cities offer that but it seems to be especially stunning in London! Thanks for linking up with us!

  2. One of my favorite spots in London! Looks like you had lovely weather for a visit!

  3. YES! Tower of London is my most favourite thing in the city. The history is INSANE and it is so interesting. I went alone and spent hours wandering around and listening to the audio guide. Whenever anyone I know comes to London I tell them to go, but no one ever shares my enthusiasm for it.
