Visit the Tower of London and experience an early entry inside the walls to see the opening ceremony, where the main gates are unlocked by the Chief Yeoman Warder or one of his fellow warders, using the Queen’s key on a huge iron ring. Learn about the history of the Tower, which was founded in 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England, and view the Crown Jewels.
