Tower of London - The Ceremony of the Keys

Tower of London - The Ceremony of the Keys

Entry By Free Tickets Only

MAP showing Tower of London

Yeoman Warder, dressed in regalia from the Tudor period - Tower of London - The Ceremony of the KeysThe Ceremony of the Keys takes place every night at the Tower of London. Just before 22.00hrs, the Chief Yeoman Warder, dressed in regalia from the Tudor period, meets the modern day military escort, made up of members of the Tower of London Guard. Together, the Chief Yeoman Warder and the Yeoman Warder 'Watchman' secure the main gates of the Tower. Upon their return down Water Lane, the party is halted by the sentry and challenged to identify themselves:

Sentry: Who comes there? (Not 'Who goes there?'!)
Chief Warder: The keys.
Sentry: Whose keys?
Chief Warder: Queen Elizabeth's keys. (identifying the keys as being those of the current British monarch)
Sentry: Pass Queen Elizabeth's Keys. All's well.
Following this, the party makes its way through the Bloody Tower Archway into the fortress, where they halt at the bottom of the Broadwalk Steps. On the top of the Stairs, under the command of their officer, the Tower Guard present arms and the Chief Warder raises his hat, proclaiming: God preserve Queen Elizabeth. The Sentry replies: Amen!
He then takes the keys to the Queen's House for safekeeping, while the Last Post is sounded.

Few people know that this ancient ceremony that has been performed at the Tower of London every evening for the last 700 years.

You can watch this ancient ceremony with a small group of people and feel privileged to have gained access to this beautiful piece of history without the crowds.

Tickets are issued Free of charge but, due to the popularity of the ceremony, it is necessary to follow the process on the Historic Royal Palaces website to apply for tickets. They need to be booked up to two months in advance by written application.

You will be required to produce the original ticket issued by the Tower of London. Visitors will only be admitted to the Tower under escort at 21:30 hrs precisely and due to the traditional nature of this event, late arrivals will not be admitted. The ceremony will conclude at 22:05 hrs after which all visitors will be escorted to the exit. There are no toilet or refreshment facilities available and photography is not permitted during any part of the ceremony.
