Don't miss the Private Changing of the Guard Walking Tour.

The Changing of The Guard is one of the most famous ceremonies in the world and a must-see London attraction, but what is the best way to experience it? There is more to it than can possibly be seen if you just join the melee pushing up against the gates of Buckingham Palace trying to catch a glimpse.

The reality is that the ceremony is a carefully orchestrated movement of soldiers between multiple locations. And just like the soldiers you will be in a small group of dedicated individuals following a fearless leader from palace to palace. Over 2 hours, we will offer you some of the best timed views of the different sites of the ceremony, and unlike any other London tour we will also explain to you why it is happening and trace the fascinating origins of the tempestuous history of guarding The Monarchy, allowing you to thoroughly appreciate what it is that you are witnessing.
