What You Can Expect

The Royal London Tour including Buckingham Palace

The Royal London Tour: Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace

Your tour at the Royal Mews (stables), located in the grounds of Buckingham Palace where you will meet your host. Here you'll see the Gold State Coach, which is used for coronations, royal weddings and other official Royal engagements. The stables are home to the horses that play an important role in The Queen's official and ceremonial duties.

Move onto Buckingham Palace, and make the most of this rare opportunity to explore the home of the Queen Elizabeth II. Here you will see the lavish State Apartments and the stunning Throne Room, where formal royal wedding photographs are traditionally taken.

Your tour ends at Buckingham Palace, so feel free to stay and take a look around the garden. This is the only place in the grounds where photos are allowed to be taken, so make sure you bring your camera for some great external shots!

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

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

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.

Four of us all enjoyed the whole visit to the Royal Mews and The Palace, would definitely be going again next year.

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.

I think Viator's pricing is a little excessive.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

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

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Amazing. Not too crowded or too rushed. Able to wander through independently,,taking as much time as desired. Audio headsets provided. Highly recommended!!!
