Time to shine a light

A giant sundial that will take you through history

Location: Tower sundial

Description: When you exit the underground at Tower Hill and walk towards the bridge there is a relaxation area with a giant sundial in the centre.

Around the base in a circle is a history of London in engraved bronze plaques going from 400 bc when London was founded through the black plague, Guy Fawkes, the Battle of Britain right through almost until the present day.

Lots of scenes to photograph.
