Guided Tour of Buckingham Palace

  • English
  • 4 hours

If you're in London, you shouldn't miss your opportunity to see inside Buckingham Palace, known worldwide as the royal residence of Queen Elizabeth II and the backdrop to the Changing of the Guard.

Itinerary

The tour begins at Piccadilly, passing through Green Park, and past Spencer House, the ancestral home of Princess Diana's family, as well as Marlborough House (designed by the famous Sir Christopher Wren, also responsible for St. Paul's Cathedral) before heading up The Mall. This tree-lined avenue forms the approach to Buckingham Palace, from Trafalgar Square to the royal residence itself.

The tour passes Clarence House, the home of His Royal Highness Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and for half a century home to the Queen Mother. 

We'll then head through St. James's Park, following the lake, viewing the wildlife and fabulous views down to Westminster and make our way past the Wellington Barracks, where the preparation for the Changing of the Guard can be seen.

If the Changing of the Guard is taking place on the day of your visit visitors will see the ceremonial march into the forecourt of the Palace and then continue past the famous facade of Buckingham Palace, and so into the palace itself.

Here the splendour of the British Royal residence where you will pass through the grand State Rooms with an audio guide, viewing among others the Throne Room, Picture Gallery and Ballroom. With gilded columns, rococo details, chandeliers, and deep royal reds, every inch of the palace is imbued with the history, tradition, wealth and luxury which represents the British Royal family. Not to be missed!
