Full description
The tour starts in front of the Palace of Westminster, the magnificent Houses of Parliament, a Victorian neo-Gothic masterpiece with its Big Ben annexe. The morning schedule includes a guided visit inside the Westminster Abbey, the most important church of England, from both a historic and architectural point of view. With this tour you will skip the line to enter, and enjoy a reduction in entrance price. Your Italian-speaking guide will share the history of this famous abbey, telling you about the eminent people who are buried here, the coronation of Queen Elizabeth the second, the funeral of princess Diana and, of course, the wedding of William and Kate. The tour of the Abbey ends at Poet's Corner where, amongst the others, Chaucer, father of English poetry, Charles Dickens and the composer Handel are buried. Once you get leave Westminster Abbey, the walk goes into the most beautiful English Royal Park, St. James' Park. There, the blooming flower beds, where the cute squirrels love chasing each other, reflect in the lake, populated by swans and pelicans. When you arrive at Buckingham Palace, it will be possible to see the very well-known Changing of the Guard ceremony. The itinerary continues to Trafalgar Square where the tour ends.

    The visit to Westminster Abbey alone is worth a trip to London, especially if accompanied by an expert guide as in our case. It should be noted, however, that we are disappointed to see that the changing of the guard in front of Buckingham Palace is scheduled only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and we had not been notified when purchasing our various visits through this site.

    Interessante, tante curiosità raccontate dalla guida, girando da soli sarebbe impossibile cogliere alcune sfumature , sia a livello culturale che di puro gossip. Si cammina a passo ben sostenuto per riuscire a rispettare il programma. Peccato non aver assistito al cambio della guardia, il sabato non è prevista
