Story Scramble

Monday 29 May - Friday 2 June

11:00 - 15:30

The Tower of London has lots of stories to tell. In this interactive trail and game for families, some of those stories have been scrambled up and must be put back together again. Meet characters from the past, handle objects, look for clues and see if you can connect the pieces as you explore 1000 years of history in a day.

Aimed at 5 - 11 years, children must be accompanied at all times.

Collect your trail map from the Visitor Centre on arrival.
