    Voucher information: No need to print! You can show your voucher on your smartphone or other device.

    London is a functioning capital city and therefore political events, demonstrations and celebrations can disrupt the route at any time, especially during summer and at weekends. While every effort is made to ensure a smooth and frequent service, there may be delays, reduced frequency and route alternations due to traffic and road closures.  

    Whilst we offer the walk daily, the Guard Change will not take place if it rains. The parade will take place at Buckingham Palace on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. On the days when the visit to the Changing of the Guard Parade won't be available, you will be taken to see the Changing of the Horse Guard at Horse Guard Parade followed by a visit to the Buckingham Palace.

    The itinerary is subject to change.

    Your voucher will be valid for three months from the date chosen at the time of booking.

    For the Christmas Lights Winter Walk (with 48-hour ticket), make your way to Original London Visitor Centre (Charing Cross Station) located at 17-19 Cockspur Street Trafalgar Square London SW1Y 5BL.

    For London's Magical Christmas Light tour (available with 72-hour ticket), you will need to call 0208 877 2131 to book your seats on the day you wish to take the tour.

    There will be no Christmas tours on 24 Dec 18 and 25 Dec 18.

    Children aged 4 and under travel free and do not need a voucher, therefore you do not need to make a booking for them.

    • Was not what I was expecting but still pretty cool. There a tour guide on the bus as well and told us plenty of different facts as we went around the town. Some tour guides were funny, others a bit interesting but saw many things and great way of transportation.
