"conquer the TOWER OF LONDON. ..." Sightseeing Tip by Krystynn

Sightseeing, London: 413 reviews and 436 photos


Favorite thing: conquer the <b><font color=#3300FF>TOWER OF LONDON</font></b>.

Originally built in the 11th century as a Royal residence, it is now the home of the Crown Jewels. This is also the place where King Henry VIII (<i>yup, that monarch with 6 wives!</i>) had his second wife, Anne Boleyn beheaded for adultery!! Poor <i>defenceless</i> Anne.... Their <i>only</i> daughter, known also as the <b>Virgin Queen, Elizabeth I</b> later became the first English FEMALE monarch of the mighty British empire! <i>Yeah</i>, that's <b>Girl Power</b> for you!!!! ;-)
