For over 900 years the Tower of London has dominated the City of London and is still one of the capital’s most prominent landmarks. Throughout its long history, it has served as a royal palace and fortress, prison and place of execution, an arsenal, royal mint, menagerie and jewel house. Today, the Tower is home to some of the most potent symbols of British history: the Yeoman Warders, ravens and Crown Jewels. Experience this historical gem with a VIP viewing of the Crown Jewels, or dine in the Martin Tower and overlook the time-honoured ‘Ceremony of the Keys’, the official locking of the Tower that has continued for over 700 years.
