Marvel at the Crown Jewels of the English monarchy, and see official regalia worn by HM the Queen, including orbs, swords, crowns and sceptres. Go to the White Tower where the “Princes in the Tower” were held before being murdered, allegedly by Richard III. With early entrance to the Tower you will be among the first to see the ceremonial opening by the Yeomen Warders. Depart the Tower and cruise down the River Thames on board a shuttle boat.
