Venue Testimonials

We love the way that the Tower of London takes you and your wedding guests on a memorable journey, with jaw-dropping historical artefacts greeting you at every turn. We chose Martin Tower for our wedding dinner, and it was the perfect size for our small gathering with closest friends and family.

The Tower of London is simply brilliant! To bring the outside in, to feel like you're on a terrace and still have that iconic White Tower view to admire - whilst enjoying tales from a Beefeater! Just perfect for planning a summer soiree in our unpredictable British weather!

We are honoured to have been the first couple to get married at the Tower of London, which made the experience all the more poignant. Throughout the evening, our guests were also treated to a private tour of the infamous Crown Jewels and exclusive access into The Keys, the Yeoman Warders’ secret pub that has existed for 150 years.
