No worries, we were not beheaded at the Tower of London, but we did learn about so many of the others who were. Some of the more famous ones we can remember: William Hastings 1483, Queen Anne Boleyn 1536, Catherine Howard 1542, Lady Jane Gray 1554 and Robert Devereux 2nd Earl of Essex 1601.
Our tour guide through the tower was a master story teller, as a result this was my favorite stop in London so far. I knew I would love it as it is also home to the crown jewels – the one area where no photos were allowed.
