Beat the crowds with our range of once-in-a-lifetime Tower tours

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 external tour of the Tower, culminating in the ancient Ceremony of the Keys.

  • Price: £1200 + VAT
  • Time: 20:30 - 22:05
  • The price includes up to twenty guests. Additional guests can be included for £60 + VAT per person, up to a maximum of fifty guests in total

'Our Yeoman Warder was superlative! He displayed all the attributes and reverence that you imagine, and yet struck just the right balance of being welcoming, charming, informative, amusing, and just a little bit scary!'
