In the spring of 2008 I travelled to London with a relative, we stayed with my cousin. While we were there we decided to go to the tower of London.
The first of the odd experiences began with our entrance. When entering the main courtyard I looked up at one of the towers, in the window of the tower I saw a figure staring out with longing, as if it was trapped there. I was slightly freaked out but decided that it must have been a person on tour there as well. When I got to that building I found the place where the window was, but it was about ten feet above the ground with no obvious way to get up there.
Later on I was in another tower towards the back of the compound; this tower was used to harbor prisoners. While I was there I kept seeing flashes of light across my vision, like orbs of light. The most frightening experiences happened in that tower. I was looking into a small glass alcove, when all of a sudden I realized I wasn't looking at my just my reflection... There was another face, an older male with a lined face, staring directly at me with a horrific expression on his face...
The tower next to this one had a dark feel about it, like of death. I made it most of the way through this tower when we were in the quarters of a king or lord who stayed there, it was getting dark at this time and the sun was gone so our shadows weren't visible. As I looked at the wall a shadow flowed across the wall, it was human in shape and had a darker coloration then any shadow I've ever seen.
These are the most experiences I have ever encountered in my life, I haven't been able to explain what happened, all I know is that the Tower of London is a place to avoid if afraid of the paranormal, but those who like the supernatural; it is definitely worth a visit if you're ever in the area.
