Explore the history of the Royal family and Parliament as you see London's most famous sights, from Buckingham Palace to Big Ben.

About this event

Explore Westminster, one of the wealthiest Boroughs in the Western world, the political heart of Britain and the home of the Royal Family, as we take you to three palaces, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey (the resting place of Dickens, Darwin and hundreds more), a Royal Park, the world’s most famous clock and the changing of the Guard ceremony*.

Travel through 1000 years of Britain’s past, learning the salacious history of the world’s most famous royal family, from William the Conqueror in 1066 to Queen Elizabeth II today. Hear tales of the monarchs who truly changed the world: the womanising Henry VIII, the regal Victoria, the People’s princess Diana and of course, Elizabeth II and the Windsors.

However, there’s more to Westminster than just the Royals. Parliament has been meeting here for 700 years and you will be regaled with tales of our greatest and most controversial leaders, from Winston Churchill to Lord Nelson and even those who fought against them, like wretched Guy Fawkes who tried to blow up Parliament.

This tour really is a must see for everyone new to London. Just try not to blink, because around every corner is yet another iconic landmark, that you won’t want to miss.

The tour begins from the Swiss Glockenspiel in front of the M&M Shop in Leicester Square, W1D 6BY. https://goo.gl/maps/xNNT9sjvszixxg6b6
