PRIVATE ROYAL LONDON TOURS – TYPICAL ITINERARY
Your driver-guide will pick-you up from your central London hotel or place of residence at the specified time. Then, in Prince Philip’s words: ‘a lunacy people enjoy’. Private Royal London Tours represents what London does best: palaces, pomp and ceremony, featuring the Crown Jewels, royal palaces and the venues connected to famous royal marriages.
TOWER OF LONDON & CROWN JEWELS
Explore this World Heritage site, and see the awesome Crown Jewels, king of bling! Then it’s ‘off with your head’, as we hear the most incredible royal saga of all: Henry VIII and his 6 wives. Also, view the magnificent St Paul’s Cathedral, venue of the ill-fated royal wedding in 1981.
A guided tour of one of the world’s greatest churches, scene of many a royal wedding and where kings and queens have been crowned for 1,000 years. Discover the tombs of legendary royal women, such as the Virgin Queen, Bloody Mary and Mary Queen of Scots. (Not Sundays.)
CHANGING OF THE GUARD AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE
All the Queen’s horses and all the Queen’s men in the kind of pomp that only London does best. Your guide will explain this centuries-old ceremony, run through the regiments that take part, regale you with regal tales, and, as the military band marches by, bag you the best spot for photos of this popular pageant of colour. (Specific days only.)
Famous for royal history from the 17th to 21st centuries. The palace was the last home of Diana, Princess of Wales, and where she brought up her sons Princes William and Harry. Indeed, royal couples Will & Kate and Harry & Meghan still live there today.
BUCKINGHAM PALACE (optional – August to September)*
This audio-guided tour takes in the magnificent state rooms and gardens of London’s royal HQ. We can’t promise an invite for tea with the Queen but we can promise you’ll be impressed. *This option may be chosen instead of Tower of London, Westminster Abbey or Kensington Palace.
Note: Private Royal London Tours are subject to visitor attraction opening hours. The schedule may change accordingly and alternative attractions such as the Royal Stables may be substituted.
