The next time you visit the Tower of London don't forget to have a tour with a Yeoman Warder (better known as the "Beefeaters"). The cost is included in the price of your entry ticket. The tours last approximately 60 minutes and leaves every 30-minutes from the Middle Tower.

The Yeoman Warders are not there just for the tourists -- they are all ex-military and have a very real job: to protect the Tower and the Crown Jewels.

There are only 35 of them in total, and their tours are always very informative and amusing, containing tales of intrigue, imprisonment, execution and torture.

One of the highlights of the tour is when you enter the Chapel Royal of St Peter and Vincula, which is usually closed to tourists during the day. This is where Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and the Earl of Essex are buried.

Craig has been to the Tower of London countless times, and he thinks that the Yeoman Warder tour is definitely worth doing. The only downside is the crowd-size, which can grow quite large (150+). But it's worth tagging along just to see inside the Chapel. Check out his review on his London blog. You might also like to read his Tower of London review as well. He's even been to a mass at the Chapel Royal.

There are always plenty of other events at the Tower of London. One of our favourites is the Ceremony of the Keys.
