I wasn't sure if the little girl would enjoy the Tower of London or not after chatting with the hubby's coworker. His girls were not too interested in it and were a little scared actually.
We had no need to worry. The little girl was very excited about seeing the tower, the Beefeaters, the Crown Jewels and the ravens. She knew all about these things before going so she was well prepared.
We went in the afternoon when the hubby was free to join us. That was great. So much easier for him to carry her when needed. Especially on the windy stairs in the keep when pushy teens want to rush by a slow three year old.
There was a new cafe within the walls that made for a nice snack and coffee break. It was a good thing we did, too, since we didn't eat until almost 8! Dinner was at an Indian restaurant in Whitechapel. Not where we had planned on going but still good.
As you can imagine, I really wanted to walk around and find the sites where one of the most notorious serial killer haunted the streets and alleys. I have always been fascinated with Jack the Ripper, but didn't think it appropriate with a 3 and 2 year old. Dinner was with another coworker and his family here from India.
Jack the Ripper walking tour will just have to wait for my next trip minus the little girl.
