Keys Ceremony-London Tower

<strong>Keys Ceremony</strong>- This 700-year-old ceremony is the nightly locking up of the London Tower gates. Every night, for about 700 years, the Yeoman Warders, often called Beef eaters, have performed a gate-closing ritual known as the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London.
