Tower of London, Raven. Eight ravens are kept at the Tower of London. Their wings are clipped so they can't fly away.  Legend has it that failing to have Ravens reside at the Tower will cause it to crumble and a terrible disaster shall befall England.

Lady Jane Grey: Chapel Royal of St. Peter ad Vincula

The execution spot for Thomas More, John Fisher, Thomas Cromwell, Edward Seymour, Thomas Wyatt, Thomas Howard, and quite a few other unfortunate souls.  The Tower of London is behind the trees in the centre, and that egg-shaped building is City Hall. The memorial itself is the square-patterned brickwork and plaques in the foreground.
