From the Changing of the Guards to The Houses of Parliament and Downing Street. See where the Royals live, sleep, eat and shop.

We will experience the guard change at Buckingham Palace from the best vantage points and visit the locations made famous by the Crown and the British Monarchy.

See where Her Majesty the Queen buys her groceries, where Prince William gets his suits made and of course the Guard Change of the Household Cavalry and the Foot Guards. I will take you to the best locations to avoid the crowds and get the best vantage points in the city.

I will take you to the secret locations of Royals, Politicians and Spies, to where history was made behind closed doors and of forgotten place names that shaped this city's history.

London was once two cities. This tour will cover the Royal Westminster City including the Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Savile Row, Bond Street, Downing Street, St. James's, Trafalgar square and must-see locations. The many traditional English shops around this area are not to be missed at Christmas time.


We will start by a trip around Westminster, the side streets near Big Ben and the houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Downing street, the mall, Buckingham Palace, ST. James's Park and palace, Pall mall, Savile row, and Mayfair.
