"the Crown Jewels" Tower of London Tip by birchy99
Tower of London, London: 525 reviews and 941 photos
The Crown Jewels are kept in the Tower of London. Guarded by lots of security devices, I'm sure, but certainly the first line of defense are the Queen's Guards. The Jewels themselves are housed in the Jewel House, (how appropriate!) which is part of the Waterloo Barracks. As one approaches the Jewels you step onto a moving walkway that takes you at a leisurely pace along the dispaly cases. Reminds me of looking at the US Declaration of Independence: "Keep moving". Can't really stop and inspect them, but worth the time.
