The day will start by watching the Changing of the Guard. It's an unmissable attraction, which is why there will be so many people there, but your guide will make sure to find you the best possible spot.

You will then visit the luxurious quarters inside Buckingham Palace, the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II. Only open to the public two months a year, it's a unique opportunity to gain a glimpse of the lifestyle of the royal couple. It houses numerous objects from the Royal Collection which come from all over the world.

Your will tour will end in a luxury hotel where you will enjoy traditional afternoon tea. Your guide will explain everything there is to know about the tradition while you enjoy sandwiches and scones with jam and cream, amongst other things, everything being elegantly presented.
