Tower Of London

Last weekend
we attended the Ceremony Of The Keys,
one of the oldest ceremonies in England
and definitely the shortest

Lasting only seven minutes,
we witnessed the official 9:30p lock up of this national fortress
which holds the Crown Jewels
as well as many stories of beheadings and WWII spies

Built by William The Conqueror
and used as a palace until James I,
the Tower Of London became a well known prison thereafter

Apply here for free tickets to observe this 760 year old tradition
of passing the Queen's keys
