    We want to see every country on this planet... Nearly there! We are from London and I walk past the top sights of London every day and still enjoy seeing them, so I thought: we should show other people these sights!! We have lived in the center of London for over 20 years (right next to the Tower of London). We are both passionate about—and fascinated by—the history and architecture of the city. Our friends and family use us as a human search engine for all things London-related. We are proud to live here, and we really enjoy showing off the city to visitors. Being able to tell people London's facts and figures is great fun.

    We will see 20+ of Westminster’s most iconic sights in a 3 hour walking tour. After which, we will enter the Guards Museum, which contains a wealth of artefacts relating to the Queen's Foot Guards namely Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards (yes the regiments with the funny hats!). Together with the Horse Guards, they form the Queen's Household Division and are responsible for guarding the royal palaces.

    This part of London is a must see for all visitors to London. We will head through Green Park to Buckingham Palace, where we'll watch the world famous Changing of the Guard ceremony (only Mon, Wed, Fri & Sun). We will walk down The Mall, the red coloured road that is adorned by two Royal Parks & two Royal Palaces Then we will head Parliament Square to see Big Ben (sadly covered up) & Westminster Abbey. Sights we will see along the way include Trafalgar Square, Nelson's Column, the Horse Guards, Downing Street, Parliament Square, Westminster Abbey & the Houses of Parliament.

    Westminster is one of London's most loved area. It is the oldest part of London with buildings that are 1000 years old. Early Kings and Queens lived, got married and were buried in this part of London. There are Palaces and Parks galore here.

    Our guides are full of interesting facts and funny stories about London that are sure to entertain!

    After that, enter the Guards museum and be amazed by their history and most importantly, their present role. Many are surprised to find out that they ARE fighting soldiers who also play a ceremonial role!
