On Sundays when there is restricted viewing at the Cathedral there will be an opportunity to enter and enjoy one of the services. Next, a photo stop outside Westminster Abbey before we head to Buckingham Palace, the official royal residence of Her Majesty the Queen. Watch the world famous changing of the Guard ceremony as the Queen's soldiers, dressed in their fabulous tunics and busbies march to military music. Free time will be given for lunch and our guide will be happy to recommend places to eat.
