My Euro Travel To The Tower of London in London, England

This post should be written some hours ago but there was an interesting program in the television that hinders me from writing it. Below is a part of the Tower of London which is also called Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress. This is one of the pictures I took during my vacation last November 2008. This palace is located along the River of Thames and was built in the Middle Ages. It's primary function before was a fortress, royal palace and also as a prison. This was where the royal class and the high status people were imprisoned.

I wish to visit this palace again because during our visit last time, we don't have the chance to go inside it.It has also served as a place of execution and torture, an armoury, a treasury, a zoo, the Royal Mint, a public records office, an observatory, and since 1303, the home of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.

Today the Tower of London is cared for by an independent charity, Historic Royal Palaces, which receives no funding from the Government or the Crown. wikipedia
