Your certified blue badge guide will take you to explore the Castle’s grand State Apartments, where the Queen hosts Heads of States on official visits, ceremonies take place, and honors are awarded.

The State Apartments can also be considered works of art in themselves, gilded as they are with artwork from the Royal Collections, including paintings by Rembrandt and Rubens.

Upon completion of your private tour of the castle, you can enjoy a walk in one or more of the three immaculately presented gardens before your driver takes you back to central London for your walking tour of the city.

Standing at over 96 meters in height, the Elizabeth Tower – more famously known as “Big Ben” is probably the most famous clock tower in the world, and one of the most iconic sights in all of England.

Once refurbishment has been completed, guests will be able to climb the 399 steps to the top of the tower, but for now, your guide will be able to discuss the history and significance of Big Ben while you admire the ornate clock face from below.

Attached to the tower is Westminster Palace, known as the Houses of Parliament, where you can see British democracy in action as you visit the Commons chamber and the Lords chamber. 

Your tour of Westminster Palace will include Westminster Hall where state functions have been held for nearly a thousand years and the Queen’s robing room where the Monarch prepares the Crown & ceremonial robes ahead the State Opening of Parliament.
