Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and Parliament


We started today by visiting the Tower of London. We first joined a tour guided by a hilarious "Beef Eater" (or more appropriately, a Yeoman Warder). After the tour we went through and saw the Crown Jewels (no pictures allowed), which included some of the biggest diamonds we will ever see.


We stopped for a quick photo op with Tower Bridge and some hot candied nuts.


Then we hopped on the tube to Westminster and walked around Parliament and Westminster Abbey. Very awesome Gothic architecture all around.
