Tower of London - Page 2

This is the second page of photos I took at the Tower of London during our cruise ship vacation aboard Holland America's Oosterdam cruise ship. We stayed in London the first three days before the ship departed.

On the first day we arrived at the hotel around 9:00 in the morning, and pretty much just scouted the area to determine the where what's and how's for the next several days sightseeing we would be doing while there.  

The bus tour included a ticket to get in, and as a bonus it was a faster line to get in with.  We decided to make our visit the first thing the next day.  There was a "hop on" spot near our hotel, so we had coffee first thing in the morning and then walked over to the bus stop to catch the first bus.

It turned out to be a great time to visit. We were almost the first people to arrive, there was hardly anyone else there. That made it very easy since the displays were so easy to see and to photograph.

To see the crown jewels, there is a moving walkway that you stand on and it takes you around the crown jewel display. At the crown jewels area they don't however, let you take any photos even without a flash. 

After several hours, and after having seen all that we wanted, as we were leaving, there were people by the mobs pouring in. It had already became much more difficult to get good photographs inside, with lines of people crowding around each exhibit. So try to be there when they open for the most enjoyable experience.
