Organisers booking their own visits to Buckingham Palace must pay long in advance and will lose the money if anyone cancels. Book with us and you’ll pay just a week before the visit and we will even refund up to five Palace tickets if you have members who can’t make it on the day – that’s over £100 in Palace tickets. Our day includes a top notch Blue Badge Guide, morning coffee and biscuits and a Royal Parks coach permit so that we can reach where other tours cannot go.
Meet the Guide in Trafalgar Square at 10.30am for morning refreshments (included). We’re not mucking about today, it’s Royal London all the way, so we’ll begin with a little walk to Horse Guards Parade to see the Changing of the Queen’s Life Guards. The coach will collect us on Whitehall and using our special Royal Parks permit we’ll drive under Admiralty Arch and along the Mall for the best views of Buckingham Palace.
During the morning our entertaining coach tour traces the story of where the royals have lived over the past twelve hundred years. We look at birthplaces, residences, scandals and successes. The morning coach tour will keep your legs fresh for the afternoon visit to Buckingham Palace.
We break for lunch on the South Bank with a choice of cafés and restaurants or bring a packed lunch. When the Queen makes her summer visit to Scotland, nineteen Buckingham Palace rooms are opened to visitors. The State Rooms are lavishly furnished with some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection - paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Canaletto; exquisite Sèvres porcelain; fine English and French furniture.
This year’s special exhibition will mark the 70th birthday of the Prince of Wales. An optional audio guide is included in the ticket price and our guide will be on hand to answer your questions.
You can buy a Royal cuppa in the Garden Marquee before heading for home at 5.30pm.
