This lovely purple-y view of the Tower of London was taken from The Queen's Walk, along the Thames. Laura's favorite part of visiting the Tower of London was seeing the Crown Jewels, which have been kept in the Tower since the 14th century. Before that they were at Westminster Abbey, but a theft convinced the Royals that it would be best to keep the treasure someplace more secure.
Laura learned that the jewels are often reused for different crowns, for example, Queen Elizabeth's crown has jewels from her mother's crown. Laura thought it quite wonderful that the Royals also recycle :)
