Discover the fascinating life of our longest reigning monarch with this special commemorative walking tour. Saunter with us to the heart of Westminster, our royal borough, to hear the stories of her record-setting reign.

Queen Elizabeth II's lifetime was one of great change, within her family, the royal institution, the country and the world itself. But as Her Majesty said herself, “Change is a constant… the way we embrace it defines our future.”

And how she embraced it.

Meeting near her birthplace in Mayfair, saunter with an expert guide and passionate storyteller on a small-group walking tour. From her life at Buckingham Palace to her wedding, coronation and funeral at Westminster Abbey via the Horseguards Parade and Downing Street, you’ll get to know the woman behind the crown and the family behind the institution on this unique tribute to one of the most iconic monarchs in Britain’s 1000 year line of Kings and Queens.

This is not history, it’s herstory.


  • Small-group walking tour of royal Westminster.
