Full description
Start the tour in Piccadilly, passing through Green Park and walk past Marlborough House and Spencer House, which was for many years the ancestral home of Princess Diana's family. The tour then goes along The Mall which is the great tree-lined approach from the official center of London in Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace.

Continuing along The Mall, your tour takes you to Clarence House, home to His Royal Highness Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. This was the London home of the Queen Mother for 50 years until her death at the age of 101. Pass St James Palace and after that go through St James's Park, viewing the wildlife and fabulous views down to Westminster and make your way past the Wellington Barracks, where the preparation for the Changing of the Guard can be seen - if happening on the day. If the change is taking place, you will see the ceremonial march into the forecourt of the palace.

Continue past the famous frontage of Buckingham Palace and go into Buckingham Palace and discover the splendor of the British Royal residence. Pass through the grand State Rooms with an audio guide, viewing the Throne Room, Picture Gallery and Ballroom.
