We have really turned back time in this post : ) Not just by stepping into a medieval world at the Tower of London, but because our kiddos are tiny, and my husband says his look is a little silly, ha! This was our son’s first international trip at the age of 1.
Visiting London had long been a dream of mine. While doing that The Tower of London had never really crossed my mind. While the many more well known landmarks in this remarkable city are impressive and beautiful, this historic site left a great impression on me. It offered the perfect opportunity to experience life like it used to be, and I found myself dreaming of castles and adventures of old. As a real life museum, it was a fun place to learn and explore without worrying about little ones who were full of energy, eager to explore their new surroundings and get their hands on everything.
We lost ourselves in many nooks and crannies, stepped into secret passageways and even got to see real jeweled crowns worth more than I could imagine. My husband, a history buff, enjoyed this adventure fully, while I loved capturing its essence through my lens. There was more here to see and explore than we had allowed ourselves time for, so if you are planning a trip be sure to plan accordingly and give yourselves at least a couple of hours. We can’t wait to visit this impressive sight again one day with our 3 kiddos now in tow, and when we will be able to fully immerse ourselves into its rich history without rushing through. As it was located next to the London Tower Bridge, it made it easy to enjoy both in the same day.
