What makes this tour special

Come and explore medieval  royals to those of the modern day. Discover two royal palaces, historic royal buildings and areas that still host the pageantry, ceremony and day-to-day life of the modern Royal Family. 

The English, and British, capital has a great deal to offer travellers seeking its past. Stretching back nearly two millennia, the city has come far from its roots as a Roman provincial outpost. Going with an expert, and private, guide through its historic heart, you will experience this journey to global city in the company of its most important buildings.

Admire London's oldest Royal Park created for sport-loving Henry VIII and a once famous dueling venue.

Hear what most tourists miss including a usurped queen, the elite sport of falconry and erotic furniture. With stories of scandal and regicide, this is the perfect opportunity to get to know the Royal family and their predecessors and discuss the ever-changing role of the monarchy through the ages. 

See the best of London in just two hours with an expert London guide. Whether you are unhurried or 'hare-footed' when exploring - enjoy an experience tailored to your interests and walking ability. 

Walk to Buckingham Palace the home of the Queen of England (and if you're lucky you will see the Changing of the Guards ceremony). A short walk on, you will see the outside of the beautiful Westminster Abbey where every King and Queen for the last 1000 years has had their coronation. It is also the place where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married.
