    Stop At: Trafalgar Square, Centre of the City, London SW1A England

    While most tourists pass by Buckingham Palace, few stop to understand what the royal guards are all about. It’s more than just a show — it’s a real part of the military’s duties! On this tour, you’ll learn the history of the regiments as you begin to explore iconic London sites starting at Trafalgar Square. Explore the Horse Guards Palace to learn about the Calvary on Guard, including London’s biggest four-legged inhabitants. You’ll continue up the Duke of York Steps, catching glimpses of the regal Admiralty Arch. Discuss monarchs by the statues of George VI and Elizabeth before heading along the Mall to St. James Palace to witness the inspection of the guards headed off to duty, to protect the queen. Follow the new regiment along the Mall to the monumental Buckingham Palace and enjoy the entire spectacle as the New and Old Guards change places before following the Old Guard back to Wellington Barracks. Appreciate this most British of British moments in a way that few tourists do, learning about the pomp and parades while watching them unfold in front of you.
