Full description
Meet your kid-friendly Blue Badge guide just outside Westminster Abbey in the City of Westminster, and begin your journey into the history of this Gothic-style church, situated just a stone's throw from the Houses of Parliament. After gaining priority access, you and your children will be fascinated as history comes to life before your very eyes. Listen to stories and anecdotes about the host of famous historical figures who are either buried or commemorated in the church, including Isaac Newton, Charles Dickens, and Charles Darwin. Visit the Coronation site, Poet's Corner, and the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior. 

Following your visit to Westminster Abbey, follow your guide for a sightseeing tour around the City of Westminster. See the numerous landmarks and sights that the area offers, including the grandeur of the Houses of Parliament, the home of British Democracy, and the adjacent Big Ben, possibly the most recognizable of all London's landmarks. Then, move on to the next stage of your tour, St. James's Park. The park is surrounded by some of the city's best-known attractions, such as Buckingham Palace and St James's Palace. Here, enjoy a little peace and tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of typical London life. 

Your tour will end right outside Buckingham Palace, the Queen's official London residence. When the Queen is at home, you can see her royal flag flying above the Palace. Here, you'll see the guardsmen at the palace gates in their traditional red jackets and tall, black furry hats known as bearskins. The perfect conclusion to an unforgettable and highly enjoyable tour.
