    What to Expect
    Your regal tour begins at the Duke of York Column, located on St. James’, where you’ll greet your guide and embark on a walking tour of London’s royal monuments.

    During the stroll to your first site, your guide provides history-rich commentary that offers insight into the British monarchy’s illustrious reign. Stop at St. James’ Palace, which has played host to iconic royals including Princess Diana and Anne Boleyn, before you continue into St. James’ Park — a green lung formerly home to the Royal Zoo.

    Stroll down The Mall, designed to represent a giant red carpet leading to Buckingham Palace, and pass by the home of Princes Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Clarence House.

    Then, approach the gates of Buckingham Palace, arguably the world’s most famous royal residence. Open for only two months a year, the opportunity to visit the State Apartments is a rare and exciting experience.

    With an audio guide to direct your exploration, you’ll delve into the lavish chambers of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II: marvel at the opulent décor and admire rooms swathed in sumptuous upholstery, chandeliers, and priceless art. See, too, important pieces from the royal collection such as Sèvres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.

    Please note that if you chose the Afternoon Tea upgrade option, you'll leave the palace and join back up with your host. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the beautiful St. James’s Park to an elegant venue, where you’ll enjoy afternoon tea. On arrival, the staff present you with a delectable spread of dainty finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, and homemade preserves, freshly made cakes and pastries, and a selection of tea.

    Well worth the cost. Booked on line very easily. Pack your walking shoes, very interesting to see in real life. Art, History and exposure to the culture. Bonus a tea garden undercover and souvenirs shop a short walk away on you way out. Great day...More

    What a great experience! The palace is only open a few months a year. I was lucky to see this place for the second in a row.

    Was glad to have the opportunity to see a working castle. It is interesting to see Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's influence on this house.

    Sandy is an exceptional tour guide, walking us from the guard change at Horse Guards Parade, through St James's Park & up to Buckingham Palace and sharing her stories and knowledge with us. Thanks Sandy :)
