Tower of London - Ceremony of the Keys Hotel & Ticket

Please choose your duration  

Halt, who comes there? The keys. Whose keys? Queen Elizabeth's keys. Pass then, all's well.

Aside from the monarch's name, this is the exact exchange that has been cried out every evening for 700 years at the Tower of London, forming part of the traditional locking up process, the Ceremony of the Keys.

Tickets for this event are sold out to the public until May 2020, but we have been given the opportunity to offer access to this hugely popular ceremony on selected dates in November and December. Don’t miss the chance to witness one of the oldest surviving enactments of its kind, set amidst the mighty battlements of this ancient fortress!

During our evening here we also enjoy an exclusive external guided tour with a Yeoman Warder (Beefeater), soaking up the tranquil atmosphere after the hustle and bustle of the daytime. We take in the famous Traitors Gate, the Execution Site and more, whilst learning about the Tower’s iconic history as a fortress, palace and prison. Founded in 1066 and built to show the Saxons who was boss, it has housed a famous and colourful selection of prisoners including Guy Fawkes, Samuel Pepys, Rudolf Hess and even the Kray Twins.

Our great-value break also includes an overnight stay at another tower – the 4-star Tower Hotel, conveniently located next to the Tower of London and ideal for exploring the city.
