Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: St. James's Park, Horse Guards Road The Storeyard, London SW1A 2BJ England

Your regal tour begins at the Duke of York Column, located on St. James’, where you’ll greet your guide and embark on a walking tour of London’s royal monuments.

During the stroll to your first site, your guide provides history-rich commentary that offers insight into the British monarchy’s illustrious reign. Stop at St. James’ Palace, which has played host to iconic royals including Princess Diana and Anne Boleyn, before you continue into St. James’ Park — a green lung formerly home to the Royal Zoo.

Stroll down The Mall, designed to represent a giant red carpet leading to Buckingham Palace, and pass by the home of Princes Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Clarence House.


Stop At: Buckingham Palace, Spur Road, London SW1A 1AA England

Then, approach the gates of Buckingham Palace, arguably the world’s most famous royal residence. Open for only two months a year, the opportunity to visit the State Apartments is a rare and exciting experience.

With an audio guide to direct your exploration, you’ll delve into the lavish chambers of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II: marvel at the opulent décor and admire rooms swathed in sumptuous upholstery, chandeliers, and priceless art. See, too, important pieces from the royal collection such as Sèvres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.

Please note that if you chose the Afternoon Tea upgrade option, you'll leave the palace and join back up with your host. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the beautiful St. James’s Park to an elegant venue, where you’ll enjoy afternoon tea. On arrival, the staff present you with a delectable spread of dainty finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, and homemade preserves, freshly made cakes and pastries, and a selection of tea.

The walking tour was very informative. We walked down tha Mall, and our guide talked about the different places along it. She allowed time for us to stop and take photos. The palace was amazing. It says no backpacks, but they allow small ones like day packs in.

Loved this tour, started at the far end of St James Park and our guide gave us a historical lesson as we walked toward Buckingham Palace. NOTE - If you use HEARING AIDS, let the company know in advance and they will have over the ear headsets for you, otherwise they are the ear plug ones. This is how she communicated her dialogue with you. Also, sort of notice what your fellow group members are wearing so you dont go astray as there are many groups out. Once at the Palace you go in a seperate entrance and your guide leaves you. You are then given an audio/video player that walks you through the rooms and describes them. This is at your own pace but plan on 1/12 to 2 hours. You are not allowed photography inside so youll want to stop by the the gift shop and get the official guide book.

Enjoyed this a lot. Our guide talked constantly about royal history on the walk up the Mall to the palace and made our entrance painless. Really enjoyed seeing the inside of the palace. Highly recommend when available.
