What to expect

No visit to London is complete until you have partaken in a series of its quintessential traditions including a guided stroll down The Mall and through one of London's most beautiful royal parks, as well as glimpse into the lives of the royal family. Meet your local guide not far from the Palace, who will take you on a walking tour of the most royal part of London. They will provide fascinating background information about the palace and the royal family, as well as the magnificent St James's Palace, built by Henry VIII and the official residence of the Queen - send her a letter and it will arrive here! You'll also visit the beautiful St James's Park, once home to the royal zoo, the Mall, built to resemble a giant red carpet leading up to the Palace, and pass by Clarence House, also a Royal palace and home to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

After your relaxing walking tour you’ll have the rare chance to visit inside of Buckingham Palace which only opens its doors to visitors for two months a year. This is where Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II extends a royal welcome to visitors, boasting lavish apartments, sparkling chandeliers, and sumptuous furnishings. These rooms house some of the greatest treasures of the Royal Collection, such as exquisite pieces of Sèvres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world. With the official Palace audio guide you’ll learn all about the palace residents, history, and traditions as well as the stories of the furnishings and ornaments. Many of these items were gifts from Heads of State spanning both the centuries and the globe.
