Description
Enjoy Royal London with a whistle stop tour of London's famous monuments; marvel at the history of London's modern masterpieces from the comfort of your seat. Have your cameras ready for a photo stop at the spectacular Westminster Abbey.


Next, head to St Paul's Cathedral, towering high over the City of London, the magnificent cathedral is widely considered to be Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece. Enter the Quire, and marvel at the beautiful mosaics inside. (On Sundays, due to Church services, there is no guided tour inside St Paul’s Cathedral).

Then see the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace. As iconic an image of London as red telephone boxes and double–decker buses, the Changing of the Guard is a not–to–be–missed royal ceremony. A mass of red tunics, and bearskins, this will be an unforgettable experience. (When the ceremony is not available, a stop at Horseguards Parade will replace it).

Once you've seen the Changing of the Guard, make your way inside Buckingham Palace with special timed entry and multimedia tour. Your escorted tour finishes outside the Palace at approximately 12pm. You can then enjoy your visit to the Palace and spend as much time as you wish inside. Special timed entry ensures your visit to the official residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837 will be a breathtaking experience. Open for just 8 weeks a year, viewing the State rooms is an opportunity not to be missed! Marvel at the splendor of the rooms used on official occasions by the queen to entertain her guests. Be dazzled by the beautiful ballroom and throne room, before completing your royal tour with a walk through the stunning south garden.

This tour was amazing!

Aug 2018

This trip was a complete lie. It was advertised as a small group, no more than 9 people total. When we arrived, there were 22 people. Really, who taught you how to count. When I questioned the guide, I was told by Golden Tours...apparently that who is really running this tour, that they NEVER have a group of 9. Interestingly enough, when I got home and checked their site again, they removed that part of the blurb. Already reported them to BBB and will never use them again. Also will give a negative review on Tripadvisor. One thing I hate in a company is dishonesty, Viator, you are a dishonest company.
