What You Can Expect

Buckingham Palace Entrance Ticket with Royal London Walking Tour

Buckingham Palace

Your regal tour begins at the Duke of York Column, located on St. James’, where you’ll greet your guide and embark on a walking tour of London’s royal monuments.

During the stroll to your first site, your guide provides history-rich commentary that offers insight into the British monarchy’s illustrious reign. Stop at St. James’ Palace, which has played host to iconic royals including Princess Diana and Anne Boleyn, before you continue into St. James’ Park — a green lung formerly home to the Royal Zoo.

Stroll down The Mall, designed to represent a giant red carpet leading to Buckingham Palace, and pass by the home of Princes Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Clarence House.

Then, approach the gates of Buckingham Palace, arguably the world’s most famous royal residence. Open for only two months a year, the opportunity to visit the State Apartments is a rare and exciting experience.

With an audio guide to direct your exploration, you’ll delve into the lavish chambers of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II: marvel at the opulent décor and admire rooms swathed in sumptuous upholstery, chandeliers, and priceless art. See, too, important pieces from the royal collection such as Sèvres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.

Your tour concludes outside of Buckingham Palace.

Loved this tour, started at the far end of St James Park and our guide gave us a historical lesson as we walked toward Buckingham Palace. NOTE - If you use HEARING AIDS, let the company know in advance and they will have over the ear headsets for you, otherwise they are the ear plug ones. This is how she communicated her dialogue with you. Also, sort of notice what your fellow group members are wearing so you dont go astray as there are many groups out. Once at the Palace you go in a seperate entrance and your guide leaves you. You are then given an audio/video player that walks you through the rooms and describes them. This is at your own pace but plan on 1/12 to 2 hours. You are not allowed photography inside so youll want to stop by the the gift shop and get the official guide book.

Enjoyed this a lot. Our guide talked constantly about royal history on the walk up the Mall to the palace and made our entrance painless. Really enjoyed seeing the inside of the palace. Highly recommend when available.

Good tour and great guide


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

this was a great tour. We had a excellent guide named Robert that was fun and very engaging. The actual meeting place for the start of the tour was a little confusing but understand now why we had to start at the top of the park to get it all in for the walking tour. We did not sign up for the tea and I am glad that I didn't because it would have only allotted an hour in the palace and we spent a good 2 1/2 hours in the palace which was definitely needed. Loved the hand held audio guides, very modern.

Allow yourself time to get through the entry point. This can be slow. Once inside there is ample space to move around and view everything. The presentation is amazing. The audio covers all areas of the palace with enough detail. Toilets are rare. Leave enough time to enjoy the gardens.

Very knowledgeable guide who bought the history of the area alive. Most welcome was the audio delivery, which meant that we didn't miss out on the information because we were not close enough to the guide.
Buckingham Palace was WOW! Who knew! Audio enhanced the experience.
