I forgot one more thing - if you can, try to attend Evensong at Westminster Abbey. It gives a whole different dimension to this incredible place. If you click on the link, you can access the service schedules and plan accordingly.

And a good place to eat is the Cafe in the Crypt at St. Martin-in-the-Fields (right off Trafalgar Square). It's fairly inexpensive and very interesting, since it sits amidst underground tombs. The food is good too - I had a wonderful bread pudding here. You can also attend concerts.

Hi -

Okay, call me a naysayer, but I found this to be a pointless waste of time.

I think my time would have been better spent doing any number of things
unrelated to the Tower. Even just walking across Tower Bridge and looking
out on the Thames and the city would have been more fascinating.

Did I mention I thought it was boring? Sorry...

It is a little boring, but fun to do once I guess. You know that now there is one female yeoman warder.

Ugh, changing of the guard was (for me) the longest most boring thing ever. I looked forward to it having seen slides of it from my Aunt & Uncle's trip there when I was small. I discovered it was far more interesting in a handful of slides. You couldn't tie me up and drag me back to it. :D
