Mr Monkey at the Tower of London

"I'd rather not be executed at all, if you don't mind"

Mr Monkey at the site of the scaffold Mr Monkey looking at Tower Green

Round the back of the White Tower, Mr Monkey found the site of the scaffold. Every so often, when the monarch was having someone executed, they'd want to avoid embarassing the condemned person. As a special favour, they could be executed inside the Tower, instead of outside where the London mob could watch. Across Tower Green, Mr Monkey noticed a guardsman guarding the Queen's House, which is where the Resident Governor of the Tower lives (so, really, it's the Resident Governor's House).
