The Tower of London Twilight Tour will allow you to experience the 1,000-year-old fortress after dark, once all the visitors have been kicked out and gone home.

You will be guided round the Tower by one of the world-famous Yeoman Warders, and see famous sights like the Bloody Tower, Traitors' Gate and Tower Green, where Henry VIII chopped the heads off his traitors.

Along the way you will hear plenty of spine-chilling tales about the residents, the prisoners... and the ghosts. Some of Britain's most famous kings, queens and criminals resided in these rooms... and not all of them left!

Craig has been on this tour himself, and definitely recommends it. But he hopes you have better luck with the weather, because it was chucking it down with rain when he went. You can read his review on his blog. As good as the tour was, it does leave out a couple of things that are well worth seeing. You don't go inside the White Tower, for example, and you con't see the Crown Jewels either. Craig has seen the whole lot though, and you can read about his day visit here.

There is one more thing that you can do in the Tower at night, and it is probably the best thing of all. It's called the Ceremony of the Keys, and you can read Craig's review of that as well.
