Commence your royal tour of London at Trafalgar Square, the bristling expanse home to Nelson’s column. Stroll past statues of notorious kings toward the Horse guards Parade Ground, home to the Household Cavalry ceremony. As immaculately groomed horses canter into the square, you’ll witness a ceremony that dates back to the 17th century.

Next, see the site upon which King Charles I was beheaded — marked by a bust of the controversial monarch — and then stroll through St James’ Park, a green space replete with fountains and flora. After ambling down the Mall, you’ll admire the grand exterior of St James’ Palace.

Bid your guide farewell at a central location and continue exploring London independently.
