Overview

Are you looking for an interactive tour to engage your kids, but also yourselves? Traveling with kids can be tricky, but Meet the Locals has crafted the perfect London activity for your family! 

Start your day at Westminster Abbey. This church has been around for over 1000 years. Moreover, since 1066 it has been the location of all but two of the coronations of the British monarchy. While much of the church architecture dates to the 1300s, this church houses the oldest door in all of Britain!  

One of the things that Westminster Abbey is most known for is the people that are buried there. 30 kings and queens are buried in the church, but that’s not all. Over 100 poets and authors are buried or have memorials in the Poets’ Corner of the Abbey, including Chaucer, William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and C.S. Lewis. In the Scientists’ Corner, names such as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Stephen Hawking. Other notable people buried or memorialized at Westminster Abbey include Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

But this church is still the site of many living royals, because some of them get married here! In 2011, Prince William married Kate Middleton at this iconic site, and many other royals have too. 

Your awesome storyteller will bring all of these tales to life! Can you solve all the clues to complete the hunt and locate your treasure?

After you’ve completed your fun treasure hunt, make your way past 10 Downing Street. This is the home of the serving Prime Minister. You will likely recognize it, as this iconic doorway has been displayed in many movies and TV shows! 

Then you’ll stroll across St. James’s Park the next part of your adventure: the Changing of the Guards! This ceremony marks the changing of responsibility from the Queen’s Guard to the New Guard. Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, this ceremony takes place near Buckingham Palace. Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, the Changing of the Horse Guards ceremony takes place at the Horse Guards Parade. Regardless of which ceremony you see, it will be full of grandeur and spectacle, which the kids will love! 

Your kid-friendly guide will show you the perfect spot the get the best view, accompanied by the perfect explanation of what you see. There are 5 regiments, and each one has slightly different uniforms. Will you be able to identify the regiment you are watching based on the description given by your guide?

FAQ

Is this tour suitable for all ages?

We recommend this tour for ages 6 and up. If you would like to visit similar locations with youngsters, we recommend our Royal London Half-Day Family Tour (they will love their ride on the London Eye!). 

Will we go inside the monuments?

This tour includes an inside visit of Westminster Abbey, but outside visits of Buckingham Palace and Downing Street. 

What if it rains/snows?

In case of bad weather, the Changing of the Guards will be cancelled. If so, we will replace this with a visit to the Royal Mews. Located at Buckingham Palace, it hosts the royal collection of historic carriages and coaches. Like a site right out of a fairytale, this will be super fun for the kids!

Will we have to wait in line?

You will have priority access tickets, but will still have to wait in the security line. These are the best conditions possible to get in fast!
