Cannon have been fired in celebration from Tower Wharf for centuries. Henry VIII marked the coronation of his second wife, Anne Boleyn, with a cannon salute. On your right is the battery where modern guns are fired today to commemorate royal anniversaries, state visits and the State Opening of Parliament.
Sixty-two gun salutes are fired for royal occasions such as the Queen's actual and official birthdays. Forty-one are fired at the State Opening of Parliament, and when a foreign head of state arrives on an official visit to the Queen.
