What To Expect
As you travel, don your state-of-the-art Vox headphones that allow you to hear every word of your guide’s commentary crisply and clearly. Listen to fascinating facts about London’s royal history and architecture, and have your camera ready along the way to snap photos of the passing landmarks.
Start with a panoramic drive through London’s handsome streets to Kensington Palace, the home of Diana, Princess of Wales from 1981 until her untimely death in 1997. Admire the elegant proportions of the palace, and hear about Diana’s life here. Then, admire the famous concert venue that is the Royal Albert Hall, and see the Albert Memorial, a grandiose memorial commissioned by Queen Victoria in honor of her beloved husband Prince Albert.
Circle Trafalgar Square and cruise down Whitehall past the Downing Street residence of the British Prime Minister. Then, drive by the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben at Parliament Square, and continue to Westminster Abbey, the magnificent Gothic church where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married in April 2011.
After taking photos here, continue to St James’ Park and Buckingham Palace to see the famous Changing of the Guard ceremony. Listen as your guide talks about the ceremony’s history. Then, from a viewpoint facing the palace, look on as the on-duty Queen’s Foot Guards — wearing their iconic red tunics and bearskin hats — march in time to a military band, and ceremoniously exchange their duties with the new guard.
Your tour then finishes in Trafalgar Square, leaving you free to explore central London during the afternoon as you wish. For a bird's-eye view of the city, upgrade to include an open-date ticket for the London Eye.
