If like me you visited the Tower of London as a child and have not been back since, now is a good time to visit. The presentation of the Crown Jewels has been totally updated to be more visitor friendly, and to improve the whole experience. The jewels are presented in the order that they would be seen at a coronation. There is also a moving platform making it impossible to stay too long looking at any one particular piece although there is also a viewing platform. Disabled access has also been improved. Join a tour, included in the entry price, given by one of the wardens, dressed in their distinctive red and black uniform, to discover antedotes not necessarily found in guide books. If you want to make the most of your visit its worth devoting a day. Expect queues especially in the school holidays.
