WALKING TOURS DESCRIPTION

THE ROYAL WALK

Allow our live guides to introduce you to the wonders of British Royalty with a walk commencing from either Green Park (stop 1) or Trafalgar Square (stop 8) at 10:00 every day. This walk will take you along The Mall where you can marvel at Buckingham Palace and be introduced to St. James’ Palace and the royal parks on either side. When the Changing of the Guard is taking place at Buckingham Palace (various – see website for dates), the walking tour will take you to a prime position to see this spectacle while on days when this is not the case, you’ll still have the opportunity to see the smaller ceremony at Horseguards and wave to the Queen (or at least her house!). This walk is not to be missed and offers an excellent addition to the bus tour, taking in a number of vantage points you won’t see on board.

INFORMATION: The tour is guided in English and departs at 10:00 every day from both Green Park (stop 1 – red and blue routes) and Trafalgar Square (stop 8 – red route) and will last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.

With an I Spy activity to complete as well as a pin badge for all those who take part, the Little Legs’ Kids’ Tour takes a route from Westminster Bridge to Trafalgar Square with facts, figures and jokes galore on route. Work off some energy and get an alternative view of London – this tour is a winner for parents and children alike.
