What is the Community Access Scheme?

The Community Access Scheme (CAS) offers free entry and practical advice and support for exploring the Tower to adult community groups and education providers based locally to the Tower of London.

Who is it for?

Groups within Tower Hamlets, City of London and Southwark, especially those who would not normally visit the palace or see it as a place of interest for them.

What does the scheme offer participating groups?

  • Free group access to the Tower for one year. You will be given an entry card upon joining the scheme and you can then visit as many times as you wish. 
  • A compulsory Group Leader Training Day designed to train group leaders and adult learning tutors to lead visits for their groups to the palace.
  • Support from our Communities Team to help groups engage with the palace's stories, collections and historic spaces.
  • Discounted entry tickets for group members who return to the Tower with a friend.

How can I get involved?

Group leaders must book a place on a Group Leader Training Day to discover more about the programme and get useful tips on what to do when bringing groups to the Tower of London.
