Join us on a live virtual walking tour of London, as we stroll together from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey. As we promenade through many London landmarks closely linked to the British Royal Family, we'll enjoy 360º views and the opportunity to ask questions for our local Blue Badge Guide leading the charge.

Our live interactive walking tour will begin at the London home of the Queen – Buckingham Palace, then have a wander through the historic St James’s Park with its many delightful ducks, waterfowl, and botanicals. We will touch on the government street Whitehall with 10 Downing Street and other official buildings and hear about England’s most famous Prime Minister, Winston Churchill before entering Parliament Square to see the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben (currently under scaffolding) and the 1000-year-old Coronation Church of Westminster Abbey.

Royal Westminster is one of two historic hearts of London. It was settled about 1000 years ago and has always been closely associated with its royal family. With royalty came the machinations of state so this area also tells the story of our democracy and how slowly the power of the people grew with representation in Parliament while the power of kings and queens decreased resulting in our constitutional monarchy today. 

Led by Art Historian and Blue Badge Guide Sarah Ciacci, this virtual tour will give you an introduction to some of the main highlights of London. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an understanding of the history of London and ideas about what to visit in greater depth on your next visit. 

This virtual tour is part of an extended series in London, led by Sarah Ciacci. Each virtual tour can be joined independently and in any order. For more information, please click here.
