Your Experience

Nothing embodies Britain’s spirit of pomp and royalty like the Changing of the Guard. It begins at 11 AM on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace if the weather is suitable and lasts for about 45 minutes. The process primarily involves guards, clad in bearskin caps and scarlet tunics, musically supported by the Regiment Band, exchanging the responsibility of protecting the Queen in her residence. Watching the elaborate ceremony is thoroughly fascinating, and with your guide at your side explaining the significance and origins of this tradition, you can be sure that it will be a highlight of your visit to the Palace.

After the ceremony, you can enjoy special timed entry to the Palace, and with your personal audio guide, explore the lavish rooms at your will. See the 19 State Rooms that are used by the members of the royal family themselves. Be dazzled by the 47 metre-long Picture Gallery and look at some of the most spectacular paintings in the Royal Collection

Though guides are not allowed to speak inside the palace, your guide will regale you with tales of the members of the Royal Family who have lived in the Palace at one point or the other so you have context for the historical audio commentary you will receive in a language of your choice allowing you to learn more about the venue. Gain valuable insights and information about the Buckingham Palace as you stroll the halls and discover the secrets of the palace.

You will also get to visit the Buckingham Palace Gardens once your exit the palace and meet up with your guide once more. Home to around 350 species of wild flowers out of which some are rare, the garden also plays home to over 30 species of birds. Your tour will end with a walk along the south stretch with splendid views of the palace and the iconic lake.
