Itinerary

Meeting point:Victoria Coach Station

Victoria Coach Station, Buckingham Palace Road

Panoramic Tour (Morning)

Your day begins with a relaxing panoramic drive through London with your expert tour guide. Along the way, your guide will regale you with interesting stories and facts about London’s long history. On this scenic journey through the city, you will see all of London’s most iconic sights, including Westminster Abbey, the iconic Elizabeth Tower, also known as ‘Big Ben’ and much, much more!

Changes of the Guard Ceremony*

At Buckingham Palace, we will stop to watch a ceremony that is the epitome of the pomp and pageantry for which Britain is famous for around the world.

Elite soldiers from the British military, also known as the Household Division, have been dutifully guarding the monarch since 1660. During the ceremony, immaculately turned out guards from the New Guard arrive to assume responsibility for protecting Buckingham Palace.

Accompanied by a regimental marching band, the soldiers of the Household Division are instantly recognizable in their bearskin caps and scarlet tunics.

*If there is no Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, we see the Changing of the Guard at Horse Guards Parade instead.

Group Tour Ends:Victoria Coach Station

Afternoon Tea at the Rubens at the Palace is an independent visit and takes place straight after the Royal London Tour.

You will be dropped off.

The Rubens at the Palace Hotel is a luxurious, 5-star venue situated a stone’s throw away from the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace. Relax and enjoy traditional afternoon tea in the lavish Palace Lounge, a bright, open space with panoramic views of The Queen’s stables.
