Yes. I do realised the start of this article is quite a contrast to the last one I posted. This last of the Tower of London Trilogy, contains the bits and pieces of the rest of the castle. To start off lightly, let's take a look at who London Paddington found during our trip here.
The authentic Paddington Bear! 正港的伯靈頓熊耶！
'I'm not for sale!' 『我是非賣品喔！』
Okay, time to see the rest of the place.
Medieval theme 中古時期
And their small beds... 還有它們超小的床...

It's quite a magnificent place... if you don't think about how many had lost their freedom and/or heads here... Or may be that adds to its magnificence??

Random shot... 隨拍

Shot of the soldier from afar. 只好從遠處拍攝
How the gates are opened. 開門用的
Sir Walter Raleigh was kept here. Raleigh was an explorer (pirate), spy, and also a poet. If you'll recall from the movie 'Elizabeth', he was sent to the tower for marrying on of Queen Elizabeth's lady-in-waiting without her permission.
Seemed like a very cosy place to be imprisoned in...
Works by Raleigh. 雷利的著作
Traitor's Gate again 又見叛徒之門
Meals in prison. 當時的牢飯
Bloody Towers are for traitors 血腥塔是留給叛徒的
I made the right decision in forfeiting The Tower in 2009. I wouldn't have had enough time to really enjoy it. I arrived in the morning, shortly before noon (or possibly around noon), and didn't finish touring around the place till five in the early evening! By then, I was completely worn out, and needed to recharge...
Oversized macaroon by the Tower! 超大macaroon!
Remains of London Wall 倫敦城牆的遺跡
Meeting Caesar on the way to the tube 回去搭地鐵時遇見羅馬大帝
Taking a closer look 再靠近一點看...
