Be part of the 700 year old ancient ceremony!
Tickets are issued free of charge but, due to the popularity of the ceremony, it is necessary to book as far in advance as is possible.
Tickets can only be booked online.
The Ceremony of the Keys is the traditional locking up of the Tower of London and has taken place on each and every night, without fail, for at least 700 years. The importance of securing the fortress for the night is still very relevant because, although the Monarch no longer resides at this royal palace, the Crown Jewels and many other valuables still do!
