Bloody Cushion

Marks the spot where we used to chop the heads off people in the Tower of London.

(Not sure what’s more macabre – the chopping off of heads or the commemorating it with a glass cushion with an indentation where a head fell.)

  1. Yes, this is new – wasn’t there when I visited in 2005. I think it’s too “pretty”. I much preferred how it was before – suitably plain to be able to imagine the gruesomeness.

  2. I was there in 1994? That definitely wasn’t there. I don’t think I like it. As you said, nothing left to the imagination. I actually thought the Tower was one of the more interesting places I visited but seems they are determined to homogenize it. Too bad. MHO
