Hampton Court, Tower of London

Lots of really old stuff that Jane likes. Daniel finds a really big bottle of coke at Tescos...


Up early this morning to fill ourselves on the excellent Hilton breakfast. Even includes Haggis which we have not been brave enough to go near. Maybe tomorrow.

Jane has mastered thw whole tube thing and we are out to Hampton Court in about an hour. It is full of really old things. Things to do with the Tudors. Things that look pretty good but things that I know nothing about.

The gardens are beautiful, the ceilings amazing and the state appartments are incredible. It is also raining heavily so the numbers are down.

Next, into the Tower of London which really is cool. I mean how can it not be. People got their heads chopped off and I think William Wallace got drawn and quartered without being anti-semetic at all.

The crown jewels are very impressive but one wonders if the money could be better spent on improving british tv.

It really begins to bucket down so we have to miss the Jack the Ripper tour of White Chappel which Jane was bummed about. Her knee has gone out and it is quite amusing that I am the fitter one at the moment.
