Day Two

Trafalgar Square. It's big and always crowded! 
Front of St. Pauls. Inside is absolutely amazing. Being in person makes it so much more amazing then just pictures. The detail is extraordinary
Driving over Tower Bridge
St. Pauls art
St. Pauls again
Tower of London
The White Tower, inside is a big display about King Henry VIII's armor.  
This is a memorial to prisoners in the Tower who were decapitated on the place where it often occurred. My favorite part was going into the prisoner's tower where so many prisoners scratched their names into the wall. Interestingly enough, well-to-do prisoners could hire a "professional" to scratch their names for them. My favorite one was one attributed to Lady Jane Grey.
