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 guide like Matt 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! So unfortunately it is not suitable for people with walking difficulties. Please have a look at our Essential London or Royal London tours if you think this may apply to you.
Please note 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! For our own experience of 'how not to see the changing the guard' - standing at the gates of Buckingham Palace.
The meeting point of the tour is at Piccadilly Circus between the Statue of Eros & Lillywhites Store. Tour Starts promptly at 10:10am.
People with walking difficulties are advised to not take this tour.
