The Royal Parks and Royal Palaces 3.5-Hour Morning Tour

7. The Royal Parks and Royal Palaces 3.5-Hour Morning Tour

This tour starts in Kensington Garden - you'll start the morning by cycling through this beautiful park to see where Queen Victoria grew up and where Princess Diana lived. Further down the road, you'll stop at London's most classic venue, The Royal Albert Hall, built to memorialize Prince Albert. Feel free to do your own "last night of the proms" or lay back and listen to one of your guide's anecdotes. Your group will then follow the "rotten row" in the magical Hyde park to the statue of one of England's biggest heroes of all time, the man who defeated Napoleon back in 1815: if you know his name and where the battle took place you're the hero of the day. It's all downhill from there, through the Green Park to visit the official residence of the Royal family, Buckingham Palace - maybe you'll get invited for a cup of tea? We hope to tell you some stories about the Palace that you won't find in a travel guide! Next stop on your route is Trafalgar square, one of the world's most famous places. Whatever happened to Lord Nelson in Trafalgar and where did all the pigeons that once lived here go? If you know this then please do share - that's what the tour is all about, sharing some stories  - it's more of a chat than a lecture with a lot of yeardropping. If you like the royal weddings and the coronations, the amazing Westminster Abbey might be the highlight for you on the tour, if you prefer some good old execution and torture you can pay some extra attention by ţhe Houses of Parliament. Then, take a selfie at Big Ben, London's number one landmark before your group goes back again through the Royal Parks to the meeting point again. But please don't rush off without challenging your guides with any questions you may have about other attractions, museums, markets and more ways to enjoy this fabulous city.

What people are saying about Green Park, London

Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 4,253 reviews

You can experience changing of the guard without a guide, and we met several people that did, but without a guide you will miss 90% of the experience. Changing of the guard includes movements of the guards between locations, so it is important to know exactly where to be and when to be there. Our guide (Alan) has done this tour hundreds of times, so he had the locations exactly right, and timed the group's location at each stop right to the minute.

Guide Alan is more than recommended. The weather was bad, he remained very enthusiastic. Took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own, lots of fun facts, takes us out of the hustle and bustle of tourism. A guide with passion for his profession who clearly intends to give his audience a very good time. Sense of humour. Thank you Alan!

Highly recommended to really see the changing of the guard. The guide, Allan, great! And following the royal guard has been super fun!

While we missed part of the show due to change of plans with the rainy weather, it was so beautiful and an informative tour

Our guide Tim is knowledgable and passionate about London’s history. Our children really enjoyed the tour. Thank you!
