Last day- London Tower and Chihuly

View Scotland/London on Ludema00's travel map.

Yesterday was our last day in London. We visited the Tower of London, known as the saddest place on earth. Other than the Crown Jewels (which we couldn’t take pics of) and the Memorial for those executed there, there really wasn’t much to see other than buildings. We did see where Anne Boleyn’s remains are. The best of the visit was our Beefeater guide. Learned a lot from him including that they are the Queen’s guards and actually live on the premises of Tower of London. They also guard the Crown Jewels. We then trekked via the Underground to Kew Gardens and the Chihuly exhibition there. It was at the Royal Botanical Gardens and was spectacular. There were several items he rarely shows. Then it was home to pack and be ready for our 5 AM pick up.
