Activity code: 105
Panoramic Tour of London
Become acquainted with London’s most well-loved landmarks during this exciting panoramic guided tour. You will sweep past a host of top attractions.
St. Paul’s Cathedral
From inspiring paintings to gloomy crypts, St Paul’s Cathedral and its towering dome is a historical masterpiece. Step inside this three hundred year old church and uncover London’s vast religious history – from the depths of Lord Nelson’s tomb to the towering heights of the Golden Gallery! St. Paul’s Cathedral is a breathtaking church and one of famous architect Sir Christopher Wren’s London masterpieces.
Please note: Due to Sunday church services, there will be no guiding inside the cathedral
Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace
After you’ve seen what the rest of London has to offer, the tour arrives at the grand Buckingham Palace for the iconic Changing the Guard ceremony. Watch the Queen’s Foot Guard march to the palace alongside a military band during the traditional performance – they’ll be decked out in their eye-catching red outfits and bearskin hats. The Guards have carried out their duty since 1660 and the ceremony is still a top London experience – nothing beats this utterly British display!
Please note: We will visit the Horseguards Parade when the ceremony is not available.
Entry to Buckingham Palace Gardens
With this year being like no other, we are delighted to offer you the opportunity to explore the gardens at Buckingham Palace like never before, to end your day in style.
Why not picnic on the lawn in front of the royal Palace, in the hidden oasis in the middle of London. Explore the 156-metre Herbaceous border, walk along the two and a half miles of gravel paths. The gardens are admired by many, but never before have we been able to view them in such detail and walk on the lawns.
The gardens at Buckingham Palace house over 1,000 trees, including the National Collection of Mulberry Trees and 320 different wildflowers and grasses. This year you will be able to see them all up close and personal.
