The Tower of London

Which really isn’t just a tower. Its a palace with lots of towers. Just so you know. I great place to visit and glad I didn’t live back in the day when they locked people up in “the tower” or to be one of the unlucky ones who was beheaded there. The tower is also home to the crown jewels which is rather neat to see as you have to go into the vault to check them out with lots of armed men around too. I do wonder if anyone has ever tried to steal them. I believe these were all taken back in 2009.

The photo on the left has me wondering did he die in that spot or just at the Tower of London. Also why was it a tradition to do so.
