Pay What You Can
15 minutes prior to the starting time
We meet at the Westminster Tube Station and we take a short walk outside where the country’s heart beats – the Parliament Square. At the first stop you will find out a dark secret behind Big Ben, who wanted to destroy the Parliament and what was happening in Westminster Abbey and why nobody could see it on TV?
Over the next few stops we will revel to you how rude or funny Churchrill was just outside his War Rooms, how many times a year the Queen celebrates her birthday and who is commemorated with the smallest monument on the Horse Guards Parade.
We will take a stroll through the beautiful St. James’s Park to hear about royal scandals, love affairs and secrets. Standing outside Buckingham Palace we will get to know Queen Victoria, find out if the Queen is at home and why does she need her own flag.
At the next stop – St. James’s Palace we will go back in time to troubled and fascinating Tudor times. How it really was with Henry VIII and his six wives, how he and his children changed England and why the Queen had bad teeth?
By the Duke of York Column we talk about nursery rhymes, the first nurse Florence Nightingale and who taught doctors to wash their hands.
Finally, as we get to Trafalgar Square you find out how to pickle a soldier, what is the worst thing about being the Queen and where you can ride on the right-side in London.
I am a Londoner but actually I have never really enjoyed the City. When I have seen the event on FB I have immediately decided to grab my boyfriend and jump into the tour at the last minute. Super interesting! The guy which was guiding us among the streets has been really well prepared, really enjoyable to listen and not boring at all! He told us a lot of historical info and something really odd and ridiculous about London, the Queen etc. Not the usual tour! Also it lasts only 2 hrs so it gave us the time to enjoy a great lunch and come back to our usual Sunday stuff. Well done guys!
I attended Westminster tour last Sunday with Vincent and it was fantastic! I am looking forward for the next one this Friday.
The tour around Westminster with Vincent was great. He can reveal a lot of fascinating stories behind the place.
Highly recommend! The walking tour makes the place alive and unforgettable. You’llreally learn a lot,
