What To Expect
Go on a fantastic tour of one of the world's most famous church, the Westminster Abbey along with a witty guide who's ready to educate you and answer all your pressing questions. See the Buckingham Palace up close by the gates!
Start off the tour with a trip to the Westminster Abbey, a 700-year-old building that poses a significant role in the history of Britain. This well-known church has seen important monarchical events such as royal weddings, state funerals, and the crowning of Kings and Queens. Go on an inside tour of this fantastic piece of architecture and feel as if you were at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton as well. See the coronation chair, the tombs of 17 British monarchs, a tomb of an Unknown Soldier (buried in French soil and covered by a slab of Belgian marble), and tombs of a great variety of the country's greatest poets in the Poet's corner.
After a tour of the Westminster Abbey, your guide will lead you to the Changing of the Guards, an old British ceremony that takes place either at the Buckingham Palace or the Horse Guards Parade (depending on the day). Experience the best views of this spectacular event. Hear a very informative commentary which tells the history and pageantry behind the ceremony. Also see the Queen's Foot Guards who march along with the military band or the Household Cavalry. Marvel at the guards' silver helmets, red tunics and bearskin hats as they march and ride their majestic horses.
Finally, admire the Buckingham Palace's exterior. This palace is the official residence of various British royals such as Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh. See the famous balcony where the royal family greets the public during major events. Hear about palace intruders and the schemes of the princes to get in and out of the palace.
