Criminal mastermind Colonel Blood and his audacious gang are up to no good at the Tower of London this February Half Term. But what exactly are they planning?
Set in 1671, the newly made Crown Jewels were being held in the Martin Tower for safekeeping, and curious visitors could pay a small fee to see them. The jewels had been completed just ten years earlier for the coronation of King Charles II, at vast expense. But, as you’ll find out, not every visitor hoping to make friends with the Keeper of the Crown Jewels could be trusted.
Colonel Blood and the Crown Jewels will be performed across the main visitor route throughout the day. You might catch scenes from this dramatic story unfolding from your place in the present-day Crown Jewel queue, outside the café, or by the Martin Tower.
This is a family-friendly activity, suitable for all ages.
Please note, in heavy rain, the event may be adapted or scaled back.
