Changing of the Guard - Fun London Tours
Most Popular Tour!
This is the London walking tour which will ensure you are in the best position possible to see the extraordinary Changing the Guard ceremony while avoiding the crowds at the gates of Buckingham Palace!
Rather than standing still for hours, we see various stages of the ceremony, including the inspection, Old Guard, New Guard, Palaces, and even march alongside the Guards and Ceremonial Bands! Our tour guides have the experience, knowledge and humour to make sure you leave with an enviable set of pictures, an insight into what is going on, an anecdote or two, and most importantly, a memory which will last forever.
We are endorsed by www.changing-guard.com and so have the backing of the most knowledgeable people out there. Sadly, a great number of people go to see this world famous ceremony and leave disappointed. They stand at the gates of Buckingham Palace and wait uncomfortably for the action to happen, but are unaware that they have missed the majority of the pomp, ceremony, music and marching that takes place elsewhere. And that is why a Fun London Guide is invaluable in getting you around. If you like a fast paced tour, with plenty of action, excitement and fun, come on this walk.
In order to stay ahead of the crowds we do have to move quickly at times - at one point we will even be marching alongside the band! We will also encounter at least one flight of steps so unfortunately it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties. Please have a look at our Essential London or Royal tours which run through the spring and summer if you think this may apply to you.
We will not stand near the gates of Buckingham Palace on this tour. It is unfortunately impractical to take a group there and wait for two or more hours packed in like sardines in a can, but we can guarantee the tour will be a far more enjoyable and informative experience!
