Buckingham Palace

No visit to London is complete without seeing the Changing of the Guard and visiting Buckingham Palace. On our combo tour you can do both in one day. Your guide will take to a prime location to see the Changing of the Guard, after which we'll go inside Buckingham Palace for a rare glimpse at the home of the royal family. This is a rare opportunity as the palace opens its doors to visitors for a very limited time every year.

Your royal London experience begins with the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. which takes place either at Buckingham Palace or Horse Guards Parade, depending on the day of the week. Your guide will make sure you are in a prime position to see this hugely popular and very crowded event, while filling you in on the history and pageantry behind the changing of the Queen's foot guards with their red tunics and unmistakable bearskin hats. Please keep in mind that the weather often dictates the schedule for the Changing of the Guard, which does not take place in the rain.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh open the doors of Buckingham Palace to visitors for just two months a year. This is a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse into the private residence of the royal family. Tickets are highly coveted and difficult to secure. Admission is pre-booked on our tour, which means access is guaranteed without waiting in line. See the sumptuous interiors and sparkling chandeliers of Queen Elizabeth II's private quarters. These rooms house some of the greatest treasures of the Royal Collection, including exquisite Sevres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world. With the official audio guide you'll learn all about the palace's history and traditions as well as the stories behind the lavish decor. Many of the pieces were gifts from heads of state.

Immerse yourself in the London of royals on our Buckingham Palace tour, including the Changing of the Guard!
