Beat the crowds with our range of once-in-a-lifetime Tower tours
The Ceremony of the Keys, in which the Tower of London’s main gates are secured for the evening, has been performed every night without fail for more than 700 years.
Standing amid the Tower’s mighty battlements in the cool night air, you can’t help but feel a sense of wonder as you witness an ancient ritual that has remained more or less unchanged since the days of Edward III.
Now, you and a select group of guests can enjoy your own exclusive tour of the Tower, culminating in a private showing of the Ceremony of the Keys.
The Crown Jewels have a special significance in British public life, making them one of the nation’s most popular tourist attractions. Our private tours let you beat the crowds and experience the stories, legends and traditions that surround these magnificent regalia at your own pace.
On this special morning tour, the Duty Exhibitor and our expert warders will welcome you to the treasury and guide you through the Crown Jewels exhibition before it opens to the general public.
Once your private tour has finished, you and your party are welcome to stay and enjoy the myriad other exhibitions throughout the rest of the Tower.
This exclusive package is about as special as it gets. You and your party will enjoy an elegant drinks reception before heading to the vault for a once-in-a-lifetime private viewing of the Crown Jewels, in the erudite company of our warders.
The Tower of London has a long and dramatic history, complete with tears, triumph, bloodshed and bears – and that’s just what the general public gets to see.
On this exclusive tour, you and your party will get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of life (and death) at the Tower, in the company of the Yeoman Warder himself.
With exclusive access to areas that are normally out-of-bounds, you’ll get under the skin of this ancient fortress and discover the secrets that lurk beneath the surface.
