VIP tour of the Tower of London and ceremony of the keys

Meet your tour guide in the lobby of your hotel and make your way to the Tower of London with the use of a London Taxi or the use of our Chauffeur-driven service.

During the early evening the public depart the Tower of London. The gates are locked and the draw-bridge is up, now you can see the Tower in a different light. See the interiors privately with your very own expert guide. This is a VIP experience to cherish, remember, and enjoy with family or friends.

Locking up time at the Tower

This tour takes place when closed to the general public. 'Halt, who comes there?'

'The keys.'  

'Whose keys?'  

'Queen Elizabeth's keys.' 

'Pass then; all's well.'     

These 15 words are exchanged between a sentry and a Yeoman Warder at the Tower of London every evening at 21:53. It’s a precise tradition that’s been unbroken for many centuries, except for one dangerous occasion. During World War II, an explosion knocked the participants off their feet. Thankfully they were still able to perform the ceremony, just a few minutes late.

The vault that holds the Crown Jewels will be open just for you, step inside the jewel House. The Tower of London is the home of the glorious Crown Jewels and has been for centuries. These items are the Coronation Regalia - items used at the coronation of a sovereign (King or Queen). You will be able to admire the ‘the First Star of Africa’ diamond (530.2 carats), the largest diamond in the world, the Black Princes’ Ruby, and the diamond with Indian origins, the famous Koh-I-Noor, meaning ‘mountain of light’, an excellent name for precious stone. Find out what it all means, and be amazed by the volume and quality of precious stones on display. For example, see the incredible Imperial Crown of India, glistening with emeralds, rubies, sapphires and 6100 diamonds.

You will have time to explore the Tower of London with your guide and learn about its inhabitants, the Yeoman Warders and the ravens. You’ll hear of the mystery of the Two Princes, and the fates of royal prisoners including Anne Boleyn. You’ll then make your way to watch the Ceremony of the Keys.
