Gun salutes

Please note the Wharf will close at least an hour before the gun salutes and there will be no access to the parts of the Wharf during the set up and duration of the gun salutes. Gun salutes take place at 13:00 and consist of 62 rounds unless otherwise stated.

The Wharf will also close the evening before each gun salute (from 18.00 to 21.00) for rehearsals. 

Please note, the 13:00 Yeoman Warder Tour will be cancelled when a gun salute is taking place. They recommence at 13:30.  

Constable's Dues

During the middle ages successive kings believed it was their right to get tolls from vessels on the Thames. The Constable of the Tower of London was allowed to demand these tolls on the king's behalf. In 1381 King Richard issued a grant that required every galley passing the Tower to present 'two roundlets of wyne' to the Constable.

The next Constable’s Dues ceremony is to be confirmed.

The Ceremony can be viewed inside the Tower and is included in your admission ticket.
