Evening tour and Ceremony of the Keys

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.

  • Time: 20:30 - 22:00
  • The price includes up to twenty guests. Additional guests can be included for £35 + VAT per person, up to a maximum of fifty guests in total
