Don’t fall into the easy trap of standing outside the gates of Buckingham Palace to see the Changing the Guard ceremony, a spectacle rooted in over 520 years of history. Most of the action actually takes place elsewhere. This high-energy tour not only explains the origins of this historic ritual but gets you within touching distance of the emblematic furry-hat-wearing guards, allowing you to march alongside the band ahead of the inspection. Best of all, some of the Royal Family’s most shocking secrets are revealed, including one about a boy who stole Queen Victoria’s underwear.
