Day Six - London

Today was a big day. We started at Tower Hill for the Tower of London, what was the location of many deaths. 

Quite impressive. Anne Boleyn came here for her coronation and then was beheaded here as well. 

Sir Walter Raleigh was also a 'guest' here. These were his rooms. 

The Queen's House.

 Complete with guard. 

We saw the Crown Jewels, but no photos were allowed. 

Then we were off to the Abbey. Westminster Abbey. Now I could have sworn I took a pic with the iPhone, but see no evidence - which means they are all in the real camera and will have to wait until I return to the states. Of course, the working churches allow no photos inside, so all I have is outside pics. This is another you will have to see for yourself. The interior is impressive. Lots of large burial art. Amazing.

We finished out day at the British Museum. All museums are free. 

The Egyptian and Assyrian collections  were quite magnificent. 

As were the Greek and Roman art. Long day and since we ate in the museum cafe, I didn't even have a meal pic. Sorry.
