Don't be fooled by its grisly reputation and overwhelming antiquity: The Tower of London has had millennial makeover. Its moat was recently host to the stunning Armistice Day memorial display of close to one million ceramic poppies, and a brand new Glass Floor was recently installed at adjacent Tower Bridge (which chillingly cracked a few days after opening – goosebumps!) which gives visitors a view of the Thames from 137 feet above water. The sprawling grounds are truly the heart of London's historic center, a stunning glimpse into its bloody past. It seems quite fitting that Game Of Thrones has chosen it for its premiere venue.
