For the Changing of the Guard, your guide will help you find a prime view spot of this time-honored ritual. Enjoy fascinating commentary about the pageantry and history behind the ceremony of the Queen’s red tunic-wearing Foot Guards and their signature bearskin hats as they march with the military band or Household Calvary (depending on your selected tour date). Note: this part of the tour is subject to weather conditions.

Open to visitors once a year for two short months, this Buckingham Palace tour is your rare opportunity to explore the majestic home of the world’s most adored royal family. Admire some of the Royal Collection’s greatest treasures: Sèvres porcelain, the finest English and French furniture in the world, masterful paintings and ornate décor - many of which were gifts from Heads of State around the world and throughout the centuries.

As the tour is pre-booked, there will be no waiting lines. Explore in a group of 25 guests or fewer and enjoy individual attention from your guide.

The Changing of the Guard is subject to changes in date, time and cancellation at the discretion of British authorities. Cancellation due to bad weather is not announced before the morning of the ceremony. When this occurs, customers will still see a ‘wet change’ during which the guards march but without the usual music or parade.

Please note that the changing of the guard schedule may change and on different dates we will see either footguards or horseguards.

The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator’s contact details. They’re a nice bunch, and will happily answer any logistical questions you may have. Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm.
