"Tour Guides at the Tower of London" Historical Tip by syllybabe

Historical, London: 219 reviews and 548 photos


Favorite thing: These guards/guides are called beefeaters (thanks phil_uk_net). They live inside the compound of the Tower of London and they're there to provide historical information and quard the grounds.
Their spiel is pretty amusing. They tell stories of love, war, family, envy, jealousy, death, etc. in the royal family through the ages.
This guy was so good he had all of us enthralled!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
