Medieval Mayhem

At the Tower of London

At the Tower of London

Fairytales and frolics are unfurling at the Tower this spring and summer as a group of busy medieval Londoners bustle about their business.

Join them on the South Lawn as they get ready to serve the Queen and put on a mini pageant about the ravens and a magical giant!

With connections to famous fairytales, mythical stories and different parts of the Tower, experience the merriment and mayhem of these medieval folk as they tell their stories.


13:00 and 14:30 daily. Each lasts for 15 minutes with one additional daily performance at 11:00 on weekends and holidays.


Until 23 June 2024
