SCHEDULED GROUP TOUR - A Royal Afternoon Tour (4 Hours)
Current Confirmed Dates: FRIDAYS TBC
Join one of our semi-private small group tours to discover two iconic Royal institutions of Victorian London: Kensington Palace and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Remember that our scheduled group tours are unique. Unlike the large bus tours, ours is not just a transfer service with free time at each location to "wander". Our tours include fully escorted guided visits with your group's professional tour guide throughout all the permitted areas at each location.
We also don't keep our guests waiting to start a tour for up to 2 hours while the tour vehicle drives around collecting passengers from different hotels around London. Our scheduled group tours start at the published times, with all the group departing together to start sightseeing directly.
Kensington Palace Tour - Entry Included
The birthplace of Queen Victoria, a favourite home of the late Princess Diana and now the official residence of Their Royal Highnesses, William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Enjoy a guided visit through a historic Royal residence like no other - from the fashions of Diana, Princess of Wales, through to the Kings and Queens apartments, each grander than the last, before a visit to magical Kensington Gardens, a tranquil and secluded oasis in the heart of the greater Hyde Park area.
Victoria and Albert Museum Tour - Entry Included
Enjoy an introductory guided visit through the largest museum of decorative and applied arts in the world.
Seven miles of exhibits and over five million objects: its easy to be overwhelemed at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Worry not, as your professional guide takes you on a journey of discovery through some of the Museum's stand out pieces. A must!
Classic Afternoon Tea - Optional Extra
What better way to end a royal experience than with the most classic of Victorian traditions: Afternoon Tea.
Treat yourself to freshly made scones with clotted cream and jam, finger sandwiches and a delicious selection of mini pastries, accompanied to drink with your choice of English tea, coffee or hot chocolate. See the optional extras for details.
The collection point is outside the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, 97 Cromwell Road, London, SW7 4DN (2 min walk from Gloucester Road Underground Station - District, Circle and Piccadilly Lines)
