Tower Of London Summer Party

When I was a little girl, I always wanted to be a Princess. I’d have long, curly blonde hair, a big pink dress, a handsome Prince – and a huge ball at a beautiful castle, surrounded by all my family and friends.

Well, this summer I got at least part of my wish. I was lucky enough to be invited to a summer party through my work, at a castle – and not just any castle. The Tower of London.

This beautiful, historic building stands on the Thames, was built by William the Conqueror, holds the Crown Jewels and is one of London’s major tourist attractions – and they now also hold corporate parties in marquees erected in their grounds.

Ready to go



My friends and I got ready with Prosecco and traditional British strawberries to accompany us! I wriggled into my favourite black party dress (a pretty cheap number from Forever 21), added my highest black heels and my favourite turquoise necklace, and off we went for a night of playing at princes and princesses.

We arrived to find a huge marquee had been erected at the bottom of the tower. Girls in their summer party wear spilled out into the evening clutching complimentary glasses of wine, the men in suit jackets and open collar shirts.

I went in and found the marquee much bigger than I expected, lit with purple sparkling lights. There was a large array of food on offer, and I grabbed a burger as ever – not a food for princesses, perhaps, but it kept me happy!

The décor was lavish, glamorous and beautiful – a perfect setting. The wine flowed and the attentive staff were always on hand to provide refills.

I didn’t take many photos, as obviously it was a work event, but we enjoyed a photo booth with a number of silly props, drank, chatted and danced the night away.

It was a fantastic evening of fun in an amazing historical location and if you ever get the chance to go, I couldn’t recommend it more!
