London’s Medieval Banquet – Halloween

It’s time to start planning for Halloween while you are visiting London. Halloween is the more modern term for the ancient holy day of All Hallows Eve, and what more interesting evening could you spend as a London tourist than to celebrate it with 420 other people under the vaulted ceilings of Ivory House, at a Medieval Banquet! Go dressed up if you want, and kids are free.

There’s unlimited beer and wine; 2 hours of live entertainment and a 4 course meal — if you want the vegetarian meal, it must be ordered when you book your reservation.

In this year which celebrates Henry VIII’s 500th anniversary of becoming King, you can experience dining in his time and being near the historic, atmospheric Tower of London all on Halloween Eve!

The regal banquet takes place by flickering torchlight in the vaulted cellars of Ivory House, which is just a stone’s throw from the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.

For the live entertainment: accompanying King Henry VIII are fighting knights, strolling players and dancing wenches altogether providing a magical medieval pageant. After the show, there is music and dancing. Then, you can take a two minute walk to Tower Bridge and enjoy a magical panoramic view of London by night.

The Medieval Banquet lasts for several hours and is accessible from nearby tube stop at Tower Hill on the District and Circle lines (then, it’s a 5 minute walk). From the station, turn left and follow the underpass towards St. Katharine’s Dock. Pass the Tower of London on the right. Walk straight on through the underpass and into St. Katharine’s Dock.

If you get lost, call (0)20 7480 5353.

Enjoy!
