We can meet at Westminster to learn about Parliament and how Big Ben got its name. From there we can see Westminster Abbey to talk about the great events that have happened here including coronations, funerals and weddings. Then a gentle stroll through St James’ Park to Buckingham Palace and on the way enjoying one of London’s finest Royal parks with great photo opportunities of views over the lake.

Depending on the time of year we may be able to see some of the splendid ceremony of the Changing of the Guard and work out how to tell if the Queen is at home. A walk along the ceremonial road known as the Mall to view the oldest Palace in London and to Horseguards Parade where the Queen celebrates her birthday every year in June. Say hello to the horses and members of the Household Cavalry on duty in Whitehall before trying to catch sight of the Prime Minister at his official residence in Downing Street.

We finish at Trafalgar Square to learn about Admiral’s Nelson’s naval victory and admire the fantastic lions at the base of his column. At the edge of Trafalgar Square we find the National Gallery and we may have time to look at some of the highlights in this incredible free collection of art. We can do these things in any order and we can combine with a visit to Westminster Abbey.
