This event has passed

The Master is delighted that the Guild has the privilege of an invitation to attend the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London as personal guests of the Chairman of the Tower of London Club. We will meet at the Tower at 7.30 pm. Our visit will include a one-hour guided tour within the grounds of the Tower. Afterwards we will be invited to enter the club and later in the evening, allowed to watch the ‘Ceremony of the Keys’. This ceremony has taken place every night, without fail for over 700 years!

You are free to leave after the Ceremony of the Keys, at 10.05pm but if you would like to extend the evening we will be again invited into the club where we can purchase drinks (cash only) and enjoy the company of our host. There will be a raffle, with the proceeds going to the Club's activities and you will be able to buy mementos of the evening. The Club closes at 11.30pm.

The Club no longer serves food so guests are advised to eat beforehand.

Entry into the Tower of London, the viewing of ‘The Ceremony of the Keys,’ the use of The Tower of London Club and the services of the Yeoman Warder are provided free of charge. The £15 price is a suggested minimum donation to the Club in order for the Yeoman Warders to continue their charitable work. The entire donation, will be presented to the Chairman of the Club.

Please note all attendees must be at least 18 years of age.
