For the Anglophile drawn to London by the country’s long history and celebrated pomp and pageantry, few events can compare to a visit to the Tower of London with Luxury Gold. Here, Claire and her team have arranged for access to one of London’s most timeless traditions, dating back hundreds of years. “At the end of each day,” Claire explains, “the Yeoman Warders hand the keys to the Tower of London from one shift of guards to the next. Before witnessing the actual ceremony, which is not open to the public, our guests will meet with one of the Yeoman Warders and hear about their responsibilities and learn about the ceremony. The Tower of London is a fascinating and historic, and also hauntingly quiet, site located amidst the bustle of one of the world’s great cities. Visiting it is special at any time, but for Luxury Gold guests there is the added plus of witnessing this age-old ceremony and meeting the guards who carry the weight of national pride on their shoulders.”
