Tower of London

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 16:30
The Tower of London, one of six palaces cared for by independent charity Historic Royal Palaces, welcomed 80 event agents and planners for an exclusive breakfast viewing last Friday (26 January).
 
Before the grounds were open to the public, guests were granted exclusive access with a private Yeoman Warder tour and viewing of the world-famous Crown Jewels. Guests were then led to the New Armouries, the Tower’s exclusive venue for daytime hire, to enjoy a delicious breakfast menu courtesy of  caterers Ampersand Events.
 
The fresh and vibrant breakfast menu included on-trend healthy options such as customisable porridge and yoghurt, alongside a build-your-own breakfast station themed as a “toast to the new year”.
 
The food was displayed on custom built stalls by Event Concept, who also provided stunning staging, backdrops, AV and decor which transformed the Banqueting Suite and accentuated the space’s versatility for daytime conferences, product launches and lunches. 
 
The morning was rounded off with a table-top demonstration by teambuilding experts WildGoose, inviting guests to try their hand at the ‘Tower Challenge’ and showcasing their enhancement of daytime events by immersing guests in the Tower’s history and encouraging team bonding.
 
Laura Drake, Commercial Events Manager at the Tower of London, said: “It was wonderful to welcome key agents and planners to enjoy breakfast and a private tour of the Tower’s grounds. The stunning breakfast setup and production in the New Armouries showcased how the space can be transformed for any type of daytime event. While the private tours and teambuilding opportunities ensure a totally unique and exclusive experience for guests, when included as part of an event programme.
 
 “The tours also serve as an additional way for clients to see first-hand how they can play their part in the care of the Tower as income raised from activities including venue hire is reinvested in conservation and education activities, to ensure the venue is well maintained and open for all to enjoy.”
