The parents and I pose in front of the Tower of London, which is in fact several towers, not one. Most people thing of imprisonment and torture, which is historically accurate, but there's much more that went on as well. We're going tomorrow, so I'll let you know what else happened there.
The detailing on this building is exquisite. We stood in front and just stared at it.
Another angle of the Houses of Parliament; this, with a statue of Richard the Lionheart. Robin Hood was his biggest fan.
Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress The Tower of London, more commonly known as the Tower of London (and historically simply as The Tower), is an historic monument in central London, England on the north bank of the River Thames.
The Tower of London is often identified with the White Tower, the original stark square fortress built by William the Conqueror in 1078. However, the tower as a whole is a complex of several buildings set within two concentric rings of defensive walls and a moat. The tower's primary function was a fortress, a royal palace, and a prison (particularly for high status and royal prisoners, such as the Princes in the Tower and the future Queen Elizabeth I).
