My friend Ellena and I (yes the Elle's) decided to climb this tower after work one day as it was a hop and a skip away from both of our offices. That is the wonder of living in London, there are so many historical sights to see that is quite easy to get to. No effort needed. Just the decision to lock it in is the most difficult part. Though I do admit I'm beginning to feel more like a local rather than a tourist, which I find myself favouring weekend social outings over sightseeing. But then again trying new restaurants/cafes/bars like a local is a tourist activity isn't it? Heck it's a win win situation.
*Ellena has now moved back to London since posting this. Miss you girl!
