The Medieval Banquet,
Within the brick lined cellar walls of the Ivory Tower by St. Katherine's dock near the Thames River, the ambiance is jovial, and audience participation is encouraged as you sing, dance, and are entertained for two hours while your banquet meal is brought to you by torch light.
The Medieval Banquet is an action packed experience, which presents an array of live entertainment as you enjoy your banquet meal.
In period medieval dress, there is sword fighting amongst fierce knights, fair maidens dancing, singing ballads, strongmen, all hosted by none other than Henry VIII.
Our banquet for the evening included servings of salad and coldcuts, vegetables, soup, potatoes, roasted chicken, and strawberry pie for dessert, with drink refills of beer or wine included with your meal.
As you enjoy your four course meal and the festivities in a large banquet setting, you may make some new friends as servings are passed. Some of the tunes we sang for the evening included Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme and
What Do You Do With a Drunken Sailor?
Our hostess and the staff for the evening were friendly and courteous. Pricing for the evening banquet is £40 per adult and £25 per child.
We would like to thank The Medieval Banquet for assisting with our feature.

Be sure to set aside lots of time to visit the Tower of London. Here a beefeater tells about the rich history, with a tall tale or two of his own. The many historical exhibits and buildings dating to William the Conqueror make for a unique experience.
