Summary of The Day: Make your visit to London a memorable one by taking part in the traditions that define it on this Buckingham Palace with afternoon tea tour. Meet your local guide not far from the core of royal London and embark on a walking tour down The Mall and through one of London's most beautiful royal parks, indulge in a traditional English afternoon tea, and take an unparalleled glimpse into the lives of the Royal Family, followed by pre-booked tickets to Buckingham Palace.
During your time together, you’ll be provided with fascinating background information on the palace and the royal family, as well as see magnificent St. James's Palace, built by Henry VIII and the official residence of the Queen (send her a letter and it will arrive here). You'll also visit the beautiful St. James's Park, once home to the royal zoo. Once on The Mall, you’ll see it was built to resemble a giant red carpet leading up to the Buckingham Palace, and you’ll pass by Clarence House, another royal residence that is home to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. After your relaxing walking tour, you’ll have the rare chance to visit the interior of Buckingham Palace.
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.
We'll wind down with a relaxing stroll to a nearby boutique hotel for afternoon tea. Your guide will explain to you the origins and heritage of this very English tradition. Relax and reflect on your afternoon as you enjoy a selection of finger sandwiches, and a classic scone with Devonshire cream and homemade preserves. The highlight of the service is the selection of freshly-made cakes and pastries.
Immerse yourself in the London of royals on our Buckingham Palace tour and afternoon tea service!
