Tower of London/London Eye (by Rachel)

by on June 19, 2015

Today was our first full day in London.  I had a fantastic time sightseeing getting to walk around.  We went to Tower of London first and walked around.  We saw the Crown Jewels which were amazing; all of the crowns, orb and scepters, and jewels are incredible, so detailed and just spectacular.  We then walked around and learned all about the history of Tower of London and saw all of the armor and weapons on display that were used hundreds of years ago. We learned how it actually started off as a castle and has gone through many different uses throughout the centuries including a prison for high status individuals and torture. After going through Tower of London, we crossed Tower Bridge and headed to the London Eye.  By the time we arrived at the London Eye, the clouds had passed and the sun was shining making it a beautiful and perfect day.  Because everything was so clear, you could see everything from the top.  I’ve never gotten to see Big Ben or the Palace of Westminster in person before, so being able to see them not in a picture, even from a distance was awesome.  I was not aware how many people smoked here, which was a little disappointing, but our first full day in London was great.
