You can see where Queen Anne Boleyn had her head chopped off by a French swordsman in 1536 as well as the secure Crown Jewels.

It is also home to the 700-year-old tradition - The Ceremony of Keys - which you can be a part of.

The event is the locking-up of the Tower on each and every night without fail, which is carried out by the wardens of the attraction.

Even though monarchs no longer reside here, it is still vitally important to lock up the Tower due to the Crown Jewels.

Tickets are issued free of charge but due to high demand; you need to apply for tickets in advance in writing.

All you need to do is send a letter to the Tower with names of all attendees, two possible dates you can attend two months in advance, with a self-addressed envelope.

When and where:

The Ceremony of Keys happens between 21.00-22.05 each day.
