Soon enough we arrived in London and walked towards the Tower, an impressive first sight and is much larger than we thought. Bought out tickets and braved the rain to the entrance.
William the Conqueror began to build the massive stone tower in 1070 at the centre of his London fortress.Nothing like it had ever been seen before. The ruthless William intended his mighty White Tower not only to dominate the skyline,but also the hearts and minds of the subjugated Londoners. He succeeded beyond his wildest dreams; nearly a thousand years later the Tower of London still holds us all in thrall
After visiting the Tower we walked over the tower Bridge. Sorry no close up photos, battery ran out,and had not seen a shop yet, to buy some more. I love the Tower Bridge and it did not disappoint. Beautiful structure, the fact that the hole thing vibrates when a bus drives on it does not matter. Also good views from the bridge.
Despite the weather not being on our side we walked around the area a bit more and saw various landmarks. It is always good just to walk around and take a look around. Finally decided that we all had enough so caught a bus to Trafalgar Square, walked to a restaurant in order to finish the day of with a nice meal and warm up a bit. Home again by 10pm. Tomorrow we will start our trip to Europe, all very exciting. It has been a lovely visit here. Thanks good people we will see you in Spain in June.
A very successful and satisfying day
