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.
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 Â£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.
