Tourists visiting the Tower of London have complained that it is not suitable for children because of its bloody past
Among the complaints include guests being given graphic details of executions carried out at the fortress – which was first built around the year 1078 and remained in use well into the 19th century.
The Tower remains home to the Crown Jewels and attracts three million visitors every year.
But one moaner posted online: ‘We took the free tour offered at the Tower and it was entertaining but not at all suitable for children.
‘The whole site should be avoided by families with children who are old enough to understand what an execution and torture are.’
Another wrote: ‘I was also extremely turned off by the repeated sexist language and jokes by my tour guide.’
Another said: ‘Great tour, marred only by some casual sexism from the presenter.’
Another said: ‘An impolite and disrespectful guard in a ridiculous costume allowed people with less walking problems to skip the line, yet told my wife is she can walk she can wait in line.’
One said: ‘The Yeoman didn’t impress – they pride themselves on being rude.’
