X'se tagħmel

I invite you to join me to see Royal palaces and other iconic royal sites, hear personal stories of my experiences with members of the Royal Family and even get to see a piece of Prince William's and Kate's wedding cake! We will start at Trafalgar Square and hear about its history and then move on to see the pomp and pageantry of the Changing of the Queen's Life Guard. We then walk along The Mall to St James' Palace and Clarence House where I will tell you tales of Princes William and Harry the night before William's wedding. Next is a short walk to Buckingham Palace where you will have more opportunities to take photos and hear stories of the Royal household. We then walk into picturesque St James' Park where there is a chance to pause (kiosk available for drinks) and look at gifts presented to me by members of the Royal family. On the way to Parliament Square I will tell you all about the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament and Big Ben). The final part of the walk takes us along Whitehall, past Downing Street (home of the Prime Minister) and then to the spot where King Charles 1st was executed. We will finish back at Trafalgar Square
Other things to note
If on the 2pm walk we will see a shortened Guard change at 4pm.
We will have an opportunity on the way for a short stop for you to buy drinks and visit a toilet.

Hi, I'm David and a retired Police Inspector from the London Metropolitan Police. I spent the last 9 years of my service in the Royalty Protection Squad serving at Buckingham Palace, St James' Palace and Kensington Palace. I also spent 4 years at Windsor Castle. I have been to Balmoral numerous times accompanying the Royal family on their holidays. I have a History Honours Degree and a diploma in European history which combined with my Royalty protection career makes me an ideal guide to lead your tour. I am a born and bred Londoner so can offer advice on other activities whilst you are in London. Follow me on instagram lombardi_bespoke_tours

Noushin & Dave
Diċembru 2021
David is a natural storyteller and catered extremely well for our diverse group of 13 to 70 something year olds, who are all ex or current Londoners. Though advertised as a Royal London tour, in reality it goes well beyond providing historical context, from Roman to modern times. We heard about Henry VIII’s hunts in St James's Park, the beheading of Charles I, Queen Victoria’s punishment of gambling guards, through to WW1 and 2 key historical facts, up through to our current Royal Family. This was presented on a backdrop of Changing of the Guards at Horse Guard’s Parade, St James’s Palace through to Buckingham Palace, all with accompanying Ceremonial Bands. A well-paced informative and fun walking tour, and a great introduction to being a tourist in London!

This was a great your with a real personal touch. You can't get any better stories of Royal life than by someone like David who was on the inside. If you have any interest in the royals take this tour!

David is a delightful, well-versed, friendly, and funny guide! He surely knows his history, and he can answer all the questions that we havw! You can tell his love for the city by the way he tell his stories… I especially love his stories about his time working for the Royal Family! And on top of that, as a true Londoner himself, he would give place recommendations that might spark your interest! Simply a lovely lovely tour, especially if you love history! Totally worth the price :)
