The Tower of London opens up for an access-all-areas look at one of the UK’s most incredible and iconic sites as well as the people who live and work there, uncovering 900 years of history and secrets, from murdered Princes to beheaded Queens.

We see the day-to-day work and life of the raven-keepers and Yeoman Warders (known as Beefeaters) and learn what it takes to look after one of the most frequently visited spots in the UK.

This spring two baby ravens have joined the Tower’s resident colony. One of them, Edgar, is called after the horror writer Edgar Allan Poe, but his sister still needs a name.
