Royal London Walking Tour Including Early Access to the Tower of London and Changing of The Guard

Get to know London’s royal history on a 4-hour walking tour and River Thames sightseeing boat tour. See the Tower of London’s opening ceremony and Crown Jewels with special early access to avoid the crowds. Visit Buckingham Palace, see the Changing of the Guard, and learn about the British Royal Family form your guide.

What to Expect

Make your own way to t he Tower of London and meet your guide at 8:15 to use your early access ticket to enter. As one of the first inside, you’ll see the opening ceremony preformed by Beefeater guards, and then have time to explore the Tower on your own.

See the Crown Jewels, the East Wall Walk, the Medieval Palace, or whatever suits your interests, then meet your guide back outside at a prearranged time, to continue on to the pier for your sightseeing tour on the River Thames.

Climb aboard and see Bing Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral and other sights along the banks of the Thames as you float into central London and arrive at Embankment Pier.

From here, walk with your guide to Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guard, before concluding the tour at the Palace. (Alternate arrangements will be made in cases of rain).
