Our tour begins with a panoramic drive up to Kensington Palace, former home of Diana, Princess of Wales. Well see the Royal Albert Hall and Albert Memorial before heading down to Trafalgar Square, along Whitehall, past the Prime Minister’s Residence at Downing Street and around Parliament Square, where we’ll see Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and, of course, Westminster Abbey.
Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guard:
We head to St James’ Park and Buckingham Palace to see the colourful ceremony of the Changing of the Guard. Accompanied by a military band, a detachment of the Queen’s Foot Guard march to Buckingham Palace in their bearskins and red tunics, and a change with the Old Guard. The tour finishes at Trafalgar Square at around 12.00pm. Your guide will be happy to give you suggestions for lunch and transportation back to your hotel. Alternatively, why not visit the site of the last great Royal Wedding, St Paul’s Cathedral – join our afternoon City of London tour, departing Trafalgar Square at 1pm.
Occasionally there may not be a Changing of the Guard, on these occasions we will visit Horseguards Parade.
