Camelot International > Tower of London

The Ravens

To the majority of visitors to the Tower of London the resident ravens appear to be just oversized black birds similar in appearance to the common crow. In many ways that is what they are but to dismiss them merely as being such would be almost the same as passing off a Golden Retriever dog as being a larger version of say, a King Charles Spaniel...

The Legend of The Ravens

Legend has it that should the ravens ever leave the Tower of London the White Tower will crumble and a great disaster shall befall England...

The Ravenmaster

So!!!! What does it take to be Ravenmaster at the Tower of London, are any special qualities required, apart from a love of birds (the feathered variety off course) and how much time is spent looking after these magnificent and almost legendary creatures. In his own words this is what he told me...
