The Queen’s Gurkha Engineers Tower of London Detachment

1st March 2019

The Queen’s Gurkha Engineers Tower of London Detachment has been working in tandem with Yeoman Warders to provide security and ceremonial guarding of the Tower.

Every day the guard conducts the Ceremony of the Word at three o’clock in the afternoon, where the ‘word’ that will grant entry to the tower after dark is received. At ten o’clock at night, the Ceremony of the Keys is performed, where the Chief Yeoman Warder locks up the Tower in a manner unchanged for centuries.
