Wat je gaat doen

I invite you to join me to see Royal palaces and other iconic royal sites, hear personal stories of my experiences with members of the Royal Family and even get to see a piece of Prince William's and Kate's wedding cake! We will start at Trafalgar Square and hear about its history and then move on to see the pomp and pageantry of the Changing of the Queen's Life Guard. We then walk along The Mall to St James' Palace and Clarence House where I will tell you tales of Princes William and Harry the night before William's wedding. Next is a short walk to Buckingham Palace where you will have more opportunities to take photos and hear stories of the Royal household. We then walk into picturesque St James' Park where there is a chance to pause (kiosk available for drinks) and look at gifts presented to me by members of the Royal family. On the way to Parliament Square I will tell you all about the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament and Big Ben). The final part of the walk takes us along Whitehall, past Downing Street (home of the Prime Minister) and then to the spot where King Charles 1st was executed. We will finish back at Trafalgar Square

Hi, I'm David and a retired Police Inspector from the London Metropolitan Police. I spent the last 9 years in the Royalty Protection Squad serving at Buckingham Palace, St James' Palace and Kensington Palace. I also spent 4 years at Windsor Castle. I have been to Balmoral numerous times accompanying the Royal family on their holidays. I have a History Honours Degree and a diploma in European history which combined with my Royalty protection career makes me an ideal guide to lead your tour. I am a born and bred Londoner so can offer advice on other activities whilst you are in London.

David's tour was excellent. He had such an in depth knowledge of the history of the area and brought fun personal stories of his time with the royals. I'd recommend to anyone interested in the history of Central London and / or the monarchy.

Dave is the best!! He has incredible inside stories and takes you to the best sites of Westminster. The area was incredible and the history telling was engaging and in depth. He even helped me find great places to visit after!

It was brilliant to be able to see parts of London I had always known about but never actually learned about. David had an excellent knowledge of history and made the tour exciting and interesting, bringing all the traditional landmarks and buildings to life with historical facts and stories as well as his own personal experiences with some of them. I’d highly recommend this tour if you are looking to fill a few hours and want to see and learn about London, even if you think you already know it all.

David is a great storyteller! Very engaged and passionate. He told of interesting facts and also adjusted the narrative of the excursion to our level of history knowledge. It seems like he loves what he does and that makes the difference. Wonderful experience!

If I had to pick only 1 experience on my trip, this would be it. I had what I thought was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. David was full of passion & pride for British history & culture, and he was generous enough to share them with me. I left the tour feeling like I fell in love with London so much more. Highly highly recommend. Thank you David!
