Changing of the Guard Tour

Changing of the Guard Tour

Tradition still lives strong in London, and many say that one hasn’t truly experienced the city until you’ve seen the Changing of the Guard ceremony. A 350-year-old ceremony that is engrained into London’s rich history, the Changing of the Guard ceremony is a fantastic spectacle for all ages. However, many people join the huge crowds at the gates of Buckingham Palace, making it practically impossible to see the ceremony. Instead, our Changing of the Guard tour ensures you are in the best position to see the ceremony, as well as experiencing various stages of the ceremony, including the inspection, Old Guard, New Guard, Palaces, and even march alongside the Guards and Ceremonial Bands! Please note we will not witness the part of the ceremony which is on the courtyard as that requires to be near the gates of Buckingham Palace. Unfortunately, it is very impractical to take a group there waiting for two or more hours.
