Buckingham Palace has been the official residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1937 and is the official Royal residence of Her Majesty the Queen. The Changing of the Guard ceremony at the Palace encompasses a colourful spectacle and British pageantry. The guarding of the Sovereign traditionally belongs to the Household Troops, known as ‘the Guards’, who have carried this duty since 1660.
After the ceremony, you will be given some free time for lunch at Victoria at around 12 noon. After lunch, check in at Gate 21 inside Victoria train Station and board a luxury air-conditioned coach which will take you straight to Stonehenge. Upon arrival at Stonehenge, you will receive a multi-lingual audio guide.
Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, stands alone in the vast empty tract of Salisbury plain. An abundance of theories surround Stonehenge; some believe it is a religious temple, while others believe it’s an astronomical clock or even a Bronze Age burial ground! Decide for yourself while you discover the site and learn the known facts about the mysterious megaliths.
Following your Stonehenge tour, you will return to London and dropped off near Victoria train station.

We were somewhat inhibited by unusual traffic in London so never got to the Tower, for example, but that was understandable. I was with 2 London friends and my two 12-year-old...Elizabeth Nestor, United States, 16/Sep/2017
