Inside the Tower of London

We go behind closed doors to meet the people working in the historic Tower of London.

For nearly one thousand years it’s been an impenetrable fortress, a royal palace and an infamous prison – there’s more history here than anywhere else in Britain. This series goes behind closed doors to meet the amazing people keeping the Tower running in the modern age; from Beefeaters handling the daily invasion of tourists to curators restoring ancient buildings, the Gaoler performing time-honoured ceremonies to the Raven Master, looking after the country’s most famous birds.  And we dig deep into the Tower’s history, from royal executions to great escapes. This is the Tower of London as you’ve never seen it before.
