Locked Up in the London Tower

Finally, four weeks left and made in it the London Tower! You know the place that Anne Boleyn was beheaded, and Bloody Mary kept prisoners, like her half sister Queen Elizabeth...that place. To my surprise its not a tower its a castle with walls and used to have a moat. It also is the home of the crown jewels, no pictures allowed. They were amazing, to bad it wasn't the hands on part of the museum. The Tower was built in the 1078 by William the Conqueror. It has been used for everything from prisoners to the royal families home. Its located on the Thames River next to the Tower Bridge which is mistaken usually for the London Bridge.

Trying to get it all in one shot.

Setup of the King's bedroom way back when.

Stairway, so old!

White Tower

The Crown Jewels were in there!

King Henry VIII's suite of armor! Can you tell he really wanted a boy?
