Royal London Tour including Buckingham Palace Gardens & Changing of the Guard

Enjoy a whistle-stop tour of famous London monuments before visiting St Paul’s Cathedral and the changing of the guard. Your tour concludes with an amazing visit to the Buckingham Palace Gardens which are open for the first time ever to the public.

See a selection of London's top Royal highlights on this on a wide-ranging and exceptional value-for-money half-day tour.

Your day starts with a panoramic coach tour of London. Enjoy a whistle-stop tour of London's famous monuments and marvel at the history of London's modern masterpieces from the comfort of your seat. Have your cameras ready for our photo stop at the spectacular Westminster Abbey.

Afterwards, head to St Paul's Cathedral. Towering high over the City of London, the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral is widely considered to be Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece, spend time here admiring this iconic building. (Please note, there is no guided element in the cathedral on Sundays).

Next up, the tour arrives at the grand Buckingham Palace for the iconic Changing the Guard ceremony. Watch the Queen’s Foot Guard march to the palace alongside a military band during the traditional performance – they’ll be decked out in their eye-catching red outfits and bearskin hats. The Guards have carried out their duty since 1660 and the ceremony is still a top London experience – nothing beats this utterly British display!

The tour then concludes with a visit to Buckingham Palace Gardens - please note you will have approximately 30 minutes between the morning tour and setting off to Buckingham Palace to grab some refreshments etc.

With this year being like no other, we are delighted to offer you the opportunity to explore the gardens at Buckingham Palace like never before, to end your day in style.

Explore the 156-metre Herbaceous border, walk along the two and a half miles of gravel paths. The gardens are admired by many, but never before have we been able to view them in such detail and walk on the lawns. The gardens at Buckingham Palace house over 1,000 trees, including the National Collection of Mulberry Trees and 320 different wildflowers and grasses.
