What You Can Expect

The Royal London Tour including Buckingham Palace

The Royal London Tour: Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace

Spend a glorious afternoon touring Buckingham Palace. Make your own way to the Royal Mews (the palace stables), where your knowledgeable guide awaits. Head into the Mews to view the Queen’s horses and her famous Gold State Coach, a key element of royal ceremony. Built in 1762, this coach has been used in coronations, royal weddings and jubilees since the time of George IV! 

Next, take an exclusive interior tour of the remarkable Buckingham Palace, symbol of the British monarchy and home to Queen Elizabeth II. Admire the ornate decor, and enjoy a commentated tour of the State Apartments and the elaborate Throne Room, the setting for royal wedding photos. 

Your 4-hour guided tour concludes here. Afterward, take some time to independently explore the gorgeous estate garden and snap some lovely exterior photos – this is the only area where photography is permitted!

This is really the best way to beat the crowds and get to see the Royal Mews and the Palace but go at your own pace. Very easy access and instructions and when in London this is a must do

Again, a superb tour. Buckingham Palace is wonderful and breathtaking to visit. The mews were fantastic but the palace more so. The tour ended with an opportunity to have morning or afternoon tea is royal style and it was a great finale to the tour. It was slow paced, not stressful and very rewarding. The grounds were superb to walk through and it was just about the best tour we went on. I would thoroughly recommend this tour as well and the all day Downton and Cotswolds tour too.

Marvellous experience everything was fine. The thing that surprised us most was how much access we had to the palace. The mews gave a terrific insight of the grandeur of coaches etc.

Confusing where to meet our guide. He wasted our time. He did not know how to get our tickets. While we were in the stables he could have got our Buckingham tickets but instead kept us waiting outside to get the tickets. The Palace tour itself was great

Well organized. Our guide was right on time and very knowledgeable. It saves so much time to be able to arrange a tour and get your tickets from home. We will use Viator again.
