For this once-in-a-lifetime event, you will be met on arrival by a Yeoman Warder who will take you on a 15-minute walking tour. Enjoy the impressive arms and royal armour on display in the Royal Armouries, Britain’s oldest national museum, before being led to the drinks reception awaiting you in the famous White Tower.
Drinks will be followed by a three-course seated dinner in the New Armouries (constructed as a storehouse for weapons seized after the English Civil War) which boasts spectacular views including Tower Bridge and the Shard.
Guests will be unable to leave the Tower between 21:45 and 22:05 due to the Ceremony of the Keys, a ritual which has taken place every night for over 700 years.
As the Tower of London is a working barracks, the event will end at 22.05 when the Yeoman Warders escort guests out of the Tower. You are then invited to join us back at the Guoman Tower Hotel next door for a nightcap, or more, at our 10th Birthday ‘after party’. This event, which includes a live band and drinks, is included in your gala ticket.
