Historical, London: 219 reviews and 548 photos
Favorite thing: They, all 7, have names:
Hardey, Thor, Odin, Gwyllum, Cedric, Hugine and Munin...
The wings of the birds are now clipped to prevent them from flying away.
Fondest memory: The King then ordered the destruction of the birds, only to be told that without them the Tower would fall and the kingdom with it.
To prevent such a catastrophe, a limited number was, therefore, allowed to remain.
