The Tower of London

The Tower of London

One of the last topics I’m going to cover about our stay in London before heading off to York is the Tower of London. This massive stone tower at the centre of this London fortress was built in the early 1080s by William the Conqueror.

A Yeoman Warder tour (or Beefeaters as they are called) is one of the most popular attractions for visitors to the Tower. It is thought that their nickname is derived from their position in the Royal Bodyguard, which permitted them to eat as much beef as they wanted from the king’s table. Today, Yeoman Warders are required to have served in the armed forces with an honorable record for at least 22 years and now they include 1 female Warder.

Together with their families, these 150 people live within the walls of the Tower of London.

I’ll leave you with a photo of the center white tower. Can you believe they even had bathrooms (albeit very primitive) built way back when? Amazing.
