Tower of London

 Our 4th day in London began with an open-top bus tour to get a
 great overview of the sites of London. We bought tickets on "The
 Big Bus Company", which also included a free river cruise. The
 live commentary was very helpful in identifying various sites. We
 could hop-on and hop-off as often as we could in 24 hours. It was
 a great way to plan our walking and Tube stops around London.

    The Tower of London   

Begun in 1078 during the reign of William the Conqueror, this well-preserved castle complex was
originally a royal residence, the tower was increasingly used as a prison after Henry VIII relocated
to Whitehall Palace in 1529. Sir Thomas More, Lady Jane Grey and Princess (later Queen) Elizabeth
were all held captive here.  -- King Henry VIII's wife Anne Boleyn was one queen beheaded here and
today it's where you'll find the British Crown Jewels. The last prisoner was Nazi Rudolf Hess (1940).
