Okay, so for others like myself who enjoy history, this was a fantastic treat! The Tower – full of mystery, history, sadness, unrequited love, and suspense.
A little bit of history: The Tower of London was built in 1066 by William the Conqueror. Yeah, it’s a pretty old building.
It’s been a royal palace, a prison, an execution area, an armory, home of priceless jewels, and had a zoo.
It is rumored that King Edward IV’s two sons were murdered here by their uncle Richard III and their bodies were buried under a stairway. Oooh! Besides the fact that two of King Henry VIII wives were executed here along with many other notable guests, such as Sir Walter Raleigh.
