The Tower of London - Evening Tour and Ceremony of the Keys
Saturday 13 July 2019

Please note a change of date: there was an administrative error at the other end, for which we were offered a small reduction in the price.

The Ceremony of the Keys is the traditional locking up of the Tower of London.

Set amidst the mighty battlements of this ancient fortress, it is one of the oldest and most colourful surviving ceremonies of its kind having been enacted every night, without fail, for well over 700 years in much the same form as we know it today. Prior to attending the Ceremony of the Keys, guests will be taken on an hour long external tour by a Yeoman Warder starting from 8.30pm. They will then be assembled to witness this historic ceremony. With the Tower secure for another evening, guests depart at 10.05pm.

The coach will leave Car Park 3 at 6pm, and will depart from London at 10.15pm.

Tickets £56
