Your royal London experience begins with the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace. Enjoy commentary regarding the history and pageantry behind the ceremony – where the Queen’s easy-to-spot Foot Guards, with their red tunics and unmistakable bearskin hats, march to Buckingham Palace together with the military band, or the Household Cavalry change the guard at Horse Guards parade, with their unmistakeable silver plumed helmets and mounted on their magnificent horses.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh open the doors of Buckingham Palace to visitors just once a year for two months. This is the real home of Queen Elizabeth II, boasting lavish apartments, sparkling chandeliers, and sumptuous furnishings. With the official Palace audio guide, you’ll learn all about the palace residents, history, and traditions as well as the stories of the furnishings and ornaments.
