Description

Get inside Buckingham Palace on an incredibly small group tour of London’s royal City of Westminster - one will be doing the Royal wave before one knows it.

Discover thousands of years of royal history on a spectacular walking tour that includes a ticket to get inside Buckingham Palace, the monarch's official London residence.

Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Whitehall, Horseguards Parade - the stones of the landmarks of Westminster tell tales of centuries of England’s royal dynasties from Saxon Kings to Virgin Queens and onwards through the longest-reigning monarch of all time - our beloved Queen Elizabeth II - to her son King Charles III.

Come along on a small-group adventure with your expert English-speaking guide through over 1000 years of history. Capture the ultimate Westminster snapshots as you visit the most iconic telephone box in the city and the Lifeguards who, on horseback, guard the entrances to the royal residences.

No tour of Royal Westminster would be complete without seeing a Royal Palace or two en route and on this tour. You’ll see three with the crowning jewel being the home of King Charles III - Buckingham Palace.

Why take this tour?

No guides are allowed to talk within the walls of the palace but fear not, after setting the scene for this unforgettable visit with anecdotes and stories of their own, your expert guide will see you off into the palace for a self-guided audio tour to be enjoyed at your own pace. 

Take up this invitation to get a rare glimpse into life at this nationally cherished palace as you tour the opulent State Rooms and marvel at gifts from Heads of State, spectacular furnishings, and artworks, all brought to life by the official Palace Audio Tour. Don’t forget to stop by the 16-hectare Palace Gardens where Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth often held her world-famous tea parties. 

With the palace being open to the public for just two months a year in August & September, tickets are always in high demand for this unforgettable experience.

Highly recommend the Buckingham Palace Changing of the Guards tour! Our tour guide Frances was amazing! He knew all the places to take us to in order to see different parts of the changing of the guards. Very I retesting and we were told many interesting facts. We were fortunate to be here when the guards were practicing for the jubilee and he knew the best places to see all of that! The marching guards and band were thrilling to watch!
