About Tower of London
Nearly 1,000 years of siege, ceremony, triumphs, tears, blood and even bears help create the remarkable atmosphere your guests will experience within these stone walls.
Give your guests a truly unique experience with a private view of the Crown Jewels, a special Yeoman Warder tour or allow them to stand witness to the ancient Ceremony of the Keys.
No experience of the Tower is complete without seeing the world’s most valuable array of crowns, coronation regalia and jewels. The fabled collection lies secure behind 2,000kg vault doors, but before passing through guests can enjoy a reception for up to 150 guests in the spacious Hall of Monarchs.
The White Tower:
At the centre of this ancient fortress and World Heritage Site is its oldest and most recognisable building – the White Tower, available for evening hire only. The King’s Great Hall on the first floor is a truly special space for dinners of up to 80 guests and receptions of up to 250, and a magnificent experience at night.
This cosy tower was once the storehouse for the Crown Jewels. The Crowns and Diamonds display inside reflects this history and makes it a special venue for small, intimate gatherings of up to 12 for a seated dinner. Guests are just a few steps away from fantastic views of the rest of the fortress.
Royal Regiment of Fusiliers:
When this prestigious space is not hosting a regimental function for the Fusiliers it is available for your important occasion, with a maximum seated capacity of 70. With splendid oil paintings of venerable field marshals and historic displays of regimental colours, this refined venue also offers a wonderful vantage point for the White Tower and the Waterloo Barracks.
A summer venue only, overlooking the River Thames, both St Thomas’s Tower and Wakefield Tower were formerly a part of the Tower’s residential area. Offering unbeatable views of London’s 21st-century riverside cityscape, Wakefield Tower can accommodate up to 40 guests for dinner and 80 for a drinks reception.
The New Armouries:
A relatively new building from the late 17th century, this former storehouse now houses two spaces, the Banqueting Suite and Meeting Suite. Versatile and accessible, the spaces are available for day time conferences, large meetings and lunches as well as evening receptions and dinners for larger groups. Virtually a blank canvas this building allows for much more theming than is possible in most other venues. The Banqueting suite is a great base for corporate away days and is often used together with other venues around the Tower.
What it’s renowned for
Housing the Crown Jewels

On the top floor of the White Tower is a Block and Axe that possibly date back to Tudor times. They were once incorrectly labelled as the axe used to behead Anne Boleyn, she actually died by sword.
