"Drink, errr...see some..." Sightseeing Tip by bcc8

Sightseeing, London: 413 reviews and 436 photos

Favorite thing: Drink, errr...see some Beefeaters

Fondest memory: That's me and a Beefeater (I'm the one on the left :-P ) Beefeaters are the caretakers of the Tower of London. They are also nice enough to give visitors tours and submit to many, many photos. The beefeater moniker may have been derived from their fondness for roast beef. The E II R on the Beefeater's uniform means Elizabeth the Second, Regina...in other words Queen Elizabeth II.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
