Having signed up for a membership of the Historic Royal Palaces when I was at Hampton Court earlier this week, I was keen to go back to the Tower and experience another Yeoman Warder tour, and headed for the city this morning.
Little things like engineering works on the tube didn't deter me (just made me walk further!) and I arrived at the Tower soon after opening at 10.. settle back for the tour, ladies!
I decided to try and concentrate on odd angles and juxtapositions of the old and the new...
I'd made it to the Eye... however, the queues to buy tickets, never mind to get on the Eye, were so long, I decided not to bother!!
Shame, as it was a lovely clear day and the view would have been spectacular - I've done it several times before, but not for ages.
Time to head home! I jumped on a bus - no way was I walking back to Victoria, it's not far, but far enough and the sun was beating down on me, and I'd nearly finished my water!!
