Who’s Feeding These Ravens? TOL Pt. III

First of all, the Crown Jewels. Simply breathtaking. They’re located in the Jewel House under armed guard; Luckily, I came on a nice quiet day. The line will curl all around the Tower Green on a busy day! The Jewel House is basically museum that winds you up to the top floor where the jewels are,…
