There is no avoiding the magnificent Buckingham Palace and you will stop here for a while to take some wonderful photos as you learn a little about the history of the palace and The Queen before you continue past the Royal Mews. Time to move on from this particular part of London, you head over to another Royal Park, Green Park and along Constitution Hill to a number of marvelous memorials and a fabulous monumental Arch with the largest bronze statue in Europe sat atop. After stopping at Number 1 London, an actual address of a great house that once belonged to the Duke of Wellington, you enter Hyde Park.

Our tour guide Anna was prompt, professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. The tour was at a good pace and we visited some places where the average person wouldn’t know about. The high tea at Kensington Palace was superb. It should be noted that you have to find your own way back from Kensington Palace as the tour ends there (was not a problem for us). Definitely a recommend.
