Experience Changing of the Guards
Changing of the guard is one of those things you simply have to experience when in London. But there is more to it than you can possibly see uncomfortably pressed up against the Buckingham Palace gates or on tiptoes peering over thousands of others hoping to catch a glimpse.

Over 2 hours we will offer you some of the best-timed views of the different sites of the ceremony, while we explain why it is happening and trace the fascinating origins of the tempestuous history of guarding the British Monarchy, allowing you to thoroughly appreciate what it is that you are witnessing.

During your tour you'll see: 
Westminster Abbey, The Palace of Westminster, The Horse Guards Parade, St James’s Palace and Buckingham Palace.
