This winter dare to take an evening tour of the Tower of London.

You will have unique afterhours access to the UK’s most visited historic attraction, and can enjoy it at its most tranquil (and its most spooky!) Take in world famous sights such as Traitors’ Gate, the Scaffold Site and the Bloody Tower, and be appalled and amazed by tales of prisoners and past residents, of royal gossip and of the secrets kept within these ancient walls.

This is an outdoor tour, over uneven cobbles and up spiral stone staircases, which does not include the Crown Jewels or the main towers.  Over 12’s only.

Cost: £25
