Tour description

Take in British royalty’s most cherished palaces, traditions, and places of interest on a half day, fully-guided tour through Kensington and Central London. In the company of a local Londoner you’ll see some of Princess Diana’s old haunts, the Changing of the Guard, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and the Houses of Parliament.

Start your day in South Kensington, one of London’s most beautiful neighborhoods, seeing buildings like the Natural History Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, then head over to Kensington gardens for a look at Kensington Palace, where Princes William and Harry live with Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. Learn the royal history of the park and stop at the touching monument to Prince Albert, who was the love the Queen Victoria’s life.

Take the tube over to Buckingham palace just in time to watch the Changing of the Guard from a special vantage point that lets you see more of the detail. Stroll across St. James’s Park and into the heart of Westminster, where your guide will show you all the most famous spots - Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, and more - and fill you in on the stories behind them.

Finally, your tour ends on the roof of a building offering spectacular views of Central London. It’s one of the hidden gems of the area and it’s only open to your group!
