Favorite spot in London

Exploring London was fun, yet also eye opening. I was sad to go, although it is nice to be home. I enjoyed exploring the old historic sites the most, especially the Tower of London. 20170402_123932 This is where the Crown Jewels of the royalty are housed and where important prisoners of the monarchy were held and possibly executed. What I didn’t realize before I got there was that the Tower of London isn’t a singular tower; it’s actually made up of a bunch of different towers and houses and such. My favorite tower was the White Tower, which used to be the armory. It is now a exhibition of all the armor that was used by people living at the Tower. They had armor for both the men and horses, in many different generations of armor.20170402_115150 There are also weapons up until either the 20th or 21st century and gifts  from other societies that are on display in the upper portions of the White Tower. The Tower also had historical reenactments, ravens, and some houses. Something I found pretty interesting was that they had a small memorial to those who had died there.  20170402_111020Considering how long ago it was that people had died there, it wasn’t something I was expecting. It was a very nice touch though. The Tower of London was so much history in one place, which was very interesting.
