Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK’s sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch.
Today, Buckingham Palace is very much a working building and the centrepiece of the UK’s constitutional monarchy, it serves as the venue for many royal events and ceremonies from entertaining foreign Head of States to celebrating achievement at Investitures and receptions.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: St. James's Palace, Marlborough Road, London SW1A 1BQ England

St. James's Palace has been the setting for some of the most important events in Royal history, having been a residence of Kings and Queens of England for over 300 years until the reign of Queen Victoria.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Horse Guards Parade at Whitehall, Horse Guards Whitehall, London SW1A 2AX England

The original and official entrance to both St James’s Palace and Buckingham Palace. 
A Guard is mounted here by members of the Household Cavalry, either the Blues and Royal or the Lifeguards (Kings Troop in July) – the Guard Changes 11am daily. 
There is a Guard inspection at 4pm every afternoon – simply because when Queen Victoria paid a visit at the same time one afternoon, she discovered a Guard pissed and slumped over a barrel of beer 
Until the late 19th Century Horseguards was also the HQ of the British Army, and remains today the official HQ for Army units based in London. 
Note the ‘Number 2’ on the clock above the archway has a black mark beside it - this is in recognition of the Execution of Charles 1, who was beheaded at 2:10pm on the 30th January 1649, opposite this spot outside the Banqueting House. 
It is a unique clock face with Roman numerals circled by decimal numbers so that the time of 2:10pm can be highlighted.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Westminster Abbey, 20 Dean's Yard Broad Sanctuary, London SW1P 3PA England

The Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066, and is the final resting place of 17 monarchs, as well as the scene of 16 Royal weddings. The church we see today was begun by Henry III in 1245. It’s one of the most important Gothic buildings in the country, and has the medieval shrine of an Anglo-Saxon saint at its heart.
Today it is still a church dedicated to regular worship and to the celebration of great events in the life of the nation. Neither a cathedral nor a parish church, Westminster Abbey (or the Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster to give it its correct title) is a "Royal Peculiar" under the jurisdiction of a Dean and Chapter, subject only to the Sovereign and not to any archbishop or bishop.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Palace of Westminster, London SW1A 0AA England

The Palace of Westminster, to give it its official name, serves as the meeting place for both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, the two houses of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.
Both Houses work on behalf of UK citizens to check and challenge the work of Government, make and shape effective laws, and debate/make decisions on the big issues of the day.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Kensington Palace, Kensington Gardens, London W8 4PX England

Home to numerous Royals, and often referred to as the Royal nursery. The focal point of a nations mourning for Princess Diana


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: St. Paul's Cathedral, St Paul's Churchyard, London EC4M 8AD England

For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City.
Frequently at the centre of national events, traditions have been observed here and radical new ideas have found expression under the iconic dome. In many cases these events have left some physical record as well as echoes in the intangible memory of the building.
The present Cathedral, the masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren, is at least the fourth to have stood on the site. It was built after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666, and services began in 1697.
This was the first Cathedral to be built after the English Reformation in the sixteenth-century, when Henry VIII removed the Church of England from the jurisdiction of the Pope and the Crown took control of the life of the church.


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Tower of London, London EC3N 4AB England

A Palace, a Prison, a place of Execution! An Armoury, an Observatory, and a Royal Zoo. 

3 Queens of England lost their heads here - Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Lady Jane Grey. 

The Tower is where the Crown Jewels are kept (used in all coronations of our Kings and 
Queens). 


Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Windsor Castle, Castle Hill, Windsor SL4 1PD England

Home to the British Monarchy since the 11th century, a Royal Residence to no fewer than 39 British Monarchs and the oldest Royal Residence in the British Isles to be in continuous use,

Highly recommended tour! From the moment we booked the tour until we were dropped off at our lodging, Paul was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and most importantly communicated clearly. He checked with us often before the tour on the details, text messaged us to confirm, and even communicated with us afterwards. Can’t say enough about how good the experience was. Cab was also extremely clean and in great shape.

Paul was an AMAZING tour guide! It was like “renting a buddy” for the day who knows everything about London and the royals. He kept us on track while showing us so much that we’d never be able to figure out on our own. Very accommodating. Truly a top notch tour and wonderful experience for a first time London tour!!!

We had a fantastic day with Paul van Nuland! Really it was great!! When the driver/guide joins the group in a friendly, enthusiastic and fun way, then the day is really perfect. Well in this case Paul fit in very well with our family. He responded to the children and was able to inform us very well about everything. Once again Paul our thanks are very big for such a nice end to our weekend in London. We will definitely come back and we will inform you!
