How about a Twilight Tour around the Tower of London?

Now you can experience what it's like to enter the 1,000-year-old fortress after dark, once all the tourists have been kicked out and gone home.

You'll be guided round the Tower by one of the world-famous Yeoman Warders (you'll know them better as the Beefeaters), and see famous sights like the Bloody Tower, Traitors' Gate and Tower Green, where Henry VIII chopped off the heads of his unwanted wives.

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

Craig has personally been on this tour himself, and definitely recommends it. He thinks it is one of the most atmospheric things you can in London, but he hopes you have better luck with the weather because it was chucking it down with rain when he went (99% of it is outside, so bring a hood!). He has written a review of the Twilight Tour on his blog.

As good as the tour was, it does leave out quite a few things that are also worth seeing. You don't go inside the White Tower, for example, and you don't see the Crown Jewels either. So you might like to read Craig's review of a daytime visit as well, and maybe his one about a daytime Yeoman Warder Tour.

There's one more thing that you can do at the Tower at nighttime, and that one is probably the best event of all. It's called the Ceremony of the Keys, and you can read Craig's review on his blog.

Craig’s review – “The sun has scarpered and I'm sitting outside the Tower of London waiting for the Twilight Tour to start. This part of London is always empty at this time of night, just the occasional worker walking through to Tower Bridge. It's a scary place to sit if your heart is made of paper. You can linger along the waterfront and not see a soul for five minutes. It's quite pre… continued”
