Back to our London trip. The Jewel Tower was something else we probably wouldn’t have seen if we hadn’t gotten the London Pass.
You might think there would be jewels in the Jewel Tower, but you would be wrong. It did once hold Edward III’s treasures.
It had some seriously low doorways, as Mr. M. demonstrates. Fortunately, he didn’t literally demonstrate by whacking his head. There was a helpful sign on the other side that said: “Low Doorway. Please mind the step.”
The stairs were like many we encountered in the historic buildings—these are probably better than most of the Tower’s stairs.
I’m happy to report we managed NOT to fall down any of them.
