Every night, a semi-secret ceremony takes place at the Tower of London. In-the-know onlookers wait in silence to watch as the fortress’s huge wooden doors are shuttered and secured, a ritual that has taken place here for roughly 700 years.
Attendees are admitted at precisely 9:25 p.m. via the main entrance of the Middle Tower. A Beefeater or Yeoman Guard will then escort you through the Byward Tower on a short mini-tour, walking first through the ancient portcullis with its “murder hole.”
