London Is Cracking & Bob’s Your Uncle! p.2

British Slang
Just in case you thought I was losing it, thought I’d better give you a translation of this post’s title. Hehe. Anyways, I’ve got more pictures of London to share (surprise, surprise). Do scroll over the pictures to get a little description & check out Part 1, 3 & 4 if you haven’t already ;)

Do you happen to have the keys to Buckingham Palace's gates? Would've been awfully useful when we were there...

A Yeoman or better known as a Beefeater. If you ever get to visit the Tower of London, make sure you take a tour with one of these guys. It comes free with your ticket & I can't recommend it highly enough. They know the history of England inside out & belly-achingly funny!
The tower of the Tower of London. This was once the tallest structure in England (and in the whole of Europe in fact) for a couple of hundred years.
This lion reminds me of Falkor the luckdragon from The Neverending Story :)       
A view of the new from the old. That's the Shard, which will be Europe's tallest building, as seen from the Tower of London.
Tower Bridge, NOT London Bridge.
