    Well done on your tickets to the Tower of London. I am lucky enough to have corporate membership of historic royal palaces and visited the Tower last year. Did you get to see the Crown Jewels? (We didnt, as the queue was too long, but it is on my list of things to do for this year).

    Chanie I made a point of getting to The Tower of London really early in the morning to ensure that I got to see The Crown Jewels and they were absolutely splendid. There were no queues when I went. :D
