The Tower of London!

23rd January 2016
The White Tower
The ‘White Tower’.

Since my ‘Snapshots from Rome’ post in December was one of the most well-received blog posts I’ve ever written, I’ve decided to share a few more photography-orientated posts of the places I’ve been to.

I’d been to the Tower of London before with my family, but visited it again in NovemberΒ with my Grandad and his brother, as they’d never been. I had a day off from uni, and we were lucky that it was sunny enough to wander around a Christmas market after and have lunch outside.

The Tower of London isn’t the cheapest place to visit, but they do a student discount, and it really is worth seeing. There are several towers with museum-esque displays to look at, you can see the crown jewels, there’s a ‘wall walk’ with great views, and so many more historical and interactive features. Even though I’ve been twice now, I’d definitely return! It’s so big that I still haven’t seen everything.

Prepare yourself for lots ofΒ pictures…

The room filled with armour was amazing!

The Tower of London Crown Jewels
Where the Crown Jewels are kept, protected by guards and lots of security.

The contrast between the old buildings at the Tower of London, and the visible Shard in the background is so strange!

‘The Giant and the Dwarf’ armour!

If you’re planning on visiting the Tower of London, I’d recommend going when it’s a bit warmer, because you’ll spend a fair amount of time outside. It can be really busy in the school holidays though, especially when queuing to see the Crown Jewels!

Thank-you for reading, have a nice day!

    I have never actually been inside the tower of London but have always wanted to go. I went to see the outside when the poppies were there and it was beautiful x

  • Elizabeth

    I would absolutely love to visit here one day! Gorgeous place with so much history!

  • I love The Tower of London. Can you believe I went to a gig there?!

  • I haven’t been to the Tower of London since I was pretty young, it’s one of those things that you don’t think to do when in London but it looks amazing. I’d love to go back as an adult as I’m sure there are so many things I don’t remember!! x

  • I somehow never went to The Tower of London when I was in London, but I think I’ll definitely have to go next time I’m in London! It looks like you had a great day.
