A mini festival of fun is unfurling at the Tower of London this summer as our muddling medieval Londoners bustle about trying to sell their wares, serve the queen and put on their pageant about the ravens and a magical giant!

See our historical characters as you wander around the Tower throughout the day and watch their 15 minute show on the South Lawn. Performances run three times a day at 11.00, 13.00 and 14.30.
