A private tour of the
Crown Jewels

We are delighted to announce a special highlight for our upcoming conference at the Tower of London. As part of this exclusive event, you’ll have the unique privilege of enjoying a private tour of the Crown Jewels.

This extraordinary experience promises to enhance the conference by offering a fascinating insight into the historical significance and exquisite craftsmanship of the British monarchy’s revered treasures. The ambiance of the Tower’s surroundings, coupled with the opportunity to observe these remarkable artefacts, will undoubtedly create a memorable and inspiring moment.

With this private tour, we hope to provide a cultural enhancement to our conference, encouraging meaningful discussions and leaving a lasting impression on everyone who attends.

What to expect when you visit the Crown Jewels

The Crown Jewels have been stored and displayed at the Tower of London since 1661. They are part of the Royal Collection, and are still used in royal ceremonies, most recently at the coronation of King Charles III.

The jewels are displayed under armed guard – they are estimated to be worth between £3bn-5bn, although they have never been officially valued as the Crown has no intention of selling them.

Most of the Crown Jewels are kept in the Treasury, where you can explore their origins and better get to know the spectacle and pageantry of the coronation procession, including how they were used during the recent coronation. As well as the famous Koh-i-Noor diamond, the current King’s crowns and those worn by previous monarchs including Queen Victoria, you’ll also see Queen Mary’s Crown. This crown was made for the 1911 coronation of King George V and was modified for Her Majesty Queen Camilla ahead of this year’s coronation.

Fascinating facts about the Crown Jewels

  • The Crown Jewels comprise of 100 objects and more than 23,000 gemstones
  • They have been protected at the Tower of London since the 1660s
  • St Edward’s Crown is the most important and sacred of all the crowns. It’s only used at the moment of crowning itself, and weighs almost 5lbs
  • The Imperial State Crown is the crown that the monarch wears as they leave Westminster Abbey after the coronation, and contains some of the most famous jewels in the collection. These include the Black Prince’s Ruby, the Stuart Sapphire, and the Cullinan II diamond.
  • The Cullinan I diamond is in the Sovereign’s Sceptre with Cross. At 3106 carats, it’s the largest gem-quality uncut diamond ever to have been found. The original uncut stone was cut to create nine major stones and 96 smaller brilliants. It took three polishers working 14-hour days, eight months to complete the nine largest stones.
  • The Coronation Spoon is the only item that survived Parliament’s destruction of the original Crown Jewels in 1649, when England briefly became a republic. It dates to the 12th century. Everything else was melted down into coins and used to pay the army that had defeated the king (Charles I).
