    Voucher information: No need to print! You can show your voucher on your smartphone or other device.

    London is a functioning capital city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during summer and at weekends. While every effort is made to ensure a smooth and frequent service, there may be delays, reduced frequency and route alternations due to traffic and road closures.  

    Whilst we offer the walk daily, the Guard Change will not take place if it rains. The parade will take place at Buckingham Palace on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. On the days when the visit to the Changing of the Guard Parade won't be available, you will be taken to see the Changing of the Horse Guard at Horse Guard Parade followed by a visit to the Buckingham Palace.

    The itinerary is subject to change.

    Your voucher will be valid for three months from the date chosen at the time of booking.

    Additional info

    Children aged 4 and under travel free and do not need a voucher, therefore you do not need to make a booking for them.

    • Frequency of buses on routes other than yellow could be better

      Raymond Lim, Singapore, 01/Sep/2016
    • Trasy dzienne obslugiwane sprawnie, równiez przejazd statkiem. Trasa nocna to jakies nieporozumienie, odjazd z Picadilly z pólgodzinnym opóznieniem o 20.30 normalna dzienna trasa zólta, a w autobusie komentarz wylacznie po angielsku -sluchawki nie dzialaja-. Wieczorem okolo 19 autobusy dojezdzaja tylko do Victoria St.
      Ogólnie mozna polecic.
