      Private British Monarchy and Palaces Tour

      London, England
      From (USD) $426 Per Guide (Maximum 6 Guests)
      • Walk in the Queen’s footsteps:  Buckingham Palace was chosen by Queen Victoria as the official royal residence, this palace epitomizes the style, grace and formality of royal estates. The palace is the administrative headquarters for the crown, the site of official events and ceremonies and the home of the current queen. 
      • Catch a glimpse of the youngest royals: Kensington Palace is the former home of Diana, Princess of Wales and the current home of several members of the royal family including the current heirs to the throne, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children. While private apartments are off limits, historic portions of the palace are open to the public. 
      • Pick your path:  Kensington Gardens was once the private garden of Kensington Palace and accessible only to “respectfully dressed” members of society on select days, this Royal Park covers approximately 270 acres and is open to the public year-round. 
      • Royal connections count: St James Palace preceded Buckingham Palace as the official royal residence. It is now maintained as the home of several members of the royal family and serves as the London home of Charles, Prince of Wales. More than 100 receptions for charities associated with the royal family are hosted here annually. 
      • Horse play allowed at St James Park: Horse lovers and those who like parades and pageantry will want to visit St James Park during the Trooping of the Colour also known as the Queen’s Birthday Parade. The park features a popular equestrian course.  
      • Skip the crowds: No tour group may have more than six members. Individual interaction with your expert guide, who is a Ph.D. or MA level historian, is encouraged. 
      • Bring the little ones: Our docents are family friendly and can adapt their presentation styles to the learning styles of children. However, please contact us directly if you have children under 13.
      About This London Tour

      Lands, titles and heritage are part of what set those who belong to the British monarchy apart from ordinary citizens. One can map the changes in the authority of the crown by following the geographical placement of the royal palaces and parks. Demographics and politics play a significant role in the creation of a royal palace.

      Our tour begins at Westminster Hall, and ends at Kensington Palace. Our first stops are Buckingham Palace and Kensington Gardens. Following along we will walk through St James Park, once the deer park of King Henry VIII, and view St. James Palace. From there we will see Clarence House, the official home of Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall. Continuing, we'll reach Green Park and Hyde Park. Finally, we'll visit Kensington Palace, the past and current home of numerous royals and heirs to the throne.

      As we tour we'll discuss the changing political influence and authority of the crown and how the royal family embodies the Victorian concept of “The Royal Family” as a domestic ideal. We will also talk about the roles of the family of the British monarch in society and culture. And of course, we will keep you up to date on the doings of our newest royals, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
