Description

In June 2022, the nation came together in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, and her unprecedented 70 years on the throne. In September of the same year, we came together again to mourn the passing of our nation’s matriarch.

When she was crowned in 1953, the Beatles were still four years away from meeting, mankind was a long way from that lunar first step and most of the county didn't even have a TV to watch the new queen officially take the throne.

Her lifetime was one of great change, within her family, the royal institution, the country and the world itself. But as Her Majesty said herself, “Change is a constant… the way we embrace it defines our future.“

And how she embraced it.

Meeting near her birthplace in Mayfair, saunter with an expert guide and passionate storyteller on a private walking tour to discover the extraordinary highs and challenging lows of her lifetime of service to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.

From her life at Buckingham Palace to her wedding, coronation and funeral at Westminster Abbey via the Horseguards Parade and Downing Street, you’ll get to know the woman behind the crown and the family behind the institution on this unique tribute to one of the most iconic monarchs in Britain’s 1000 year line of Kings and Queens.

This is not history, it’s herstory.

We loved it. The tour guide, Francis, was very nice and got us to the right places at the right time. He talked about the history of the monarchy and some stories about the experiences he’s had with the royal family. The change of the guards was really cool and interesting to see. The overal experience was great. :)

In mid December my family and I went on a changing of the guard tour with Francis. He was an amazing guide with exceptional knowledge and ensured we got the best view of everything. The tour was enjoyable and we’re all so glad we went!
