Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace

Kim and I went to the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. As we were approaching the Victoria Memorial a wonderful older gentleman stopped us. First he asked if we spoke English (fun!) and then he proceeded to tell us where the best vantage point was, and that we should go watch the band practice and go through inspection. So we did!







On our way to the Tower we had lunch at the Liberty Bounds

The Tower of London
After lunch we met up with Ariel and toured the Tower of London.



Our Beef-eater Tour was amazing and our Yeoman Warder Mark was very entertaining. Behind him is the Chapel, which we were unable to tour because there was a wedding that afternoon.


This is where they house the Royal Jewels. The exhibition was beautiful.

Two of the six tower ravens. Later on we saw another on the lawn.
