Westminster Tour Itinerary

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.

Wonders of London works on a pay what you feel basis, we understand that many of you have travelled various distances to get here, some of you might be locals, some of you might be on holiday here and we know that it can be difficult to enjoy all of London’s best attractions without spending a fair penny. We want our tours to be accessible to anyone and everyone so we don’t charge a ticket price but just bear in mind that are guides are working guides so we ask that at the end of the tour just have a think about what the tour was worth to you and pay however much or small you feel.

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!
