LONDON MUST SEE THE ROYAL PALACES
As the saying goes, the house of the Englishman is his palace, but is it fit for a king or queen? Our popular classic London sightseeing tour includes five royal palaces on a must-see London sightseeing itinerary. Any palace can claim its right to become a castle because of the security, strength and protection it offers to the kingdom and its inhabitants.
Over the centuries our castle has been attacked by robbers and rebels who intend to invade our land using rams, catapults and ladders. Fortunately, the only soldiers attacked by us today were visitors from home and abroad who came to London with cell phones to take stunning pictures of London's landmarks that they could instantly share on social media. Family and friends can see it.
As driver guides, we will give a brief presentation of what can be seen visually in each palace we come to and then cover up part of the enchanting history that these majestic buildings have preserved within their ancient walls. Then we put our customers in photos so they can capture their own memories of the tour.
Buckingham Palace is often at the top of visitors' wish lists. After all, it is the main monarchy residence in London and a central element of the famous changing of the guard ceremony, a great performance and a lot of fun. Many people are curious to hear that Queen Victoria was the first monarch to consider Buckingham Palace an important royal residence. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert remodeled the original palace and installed an east-facing balcony, where the royal family still gathers to greet the public to this day. The annual Trooping of The Color ceremony in London concludes with a Royal Air Force (RAF) flight and is witnessed by members of the Royal Family from the balcony of the famous Buckingham Palace. A scene that is very monumental, well known and loved by the public.
As a guide, we love questions and exams! Some of the most frequently asked questions to customers are related to Buckingham Palace. "Is the Queen at home?", "How many rooms are there?", "How long are the guards on duty?"
PALACE OF ST. JAMES
Just a short walk to the Mall is St. James's Palace, a Tudor-style red brick palace built during the reign of Henry VIII as a retreat for the country and his new wife, Anne Boleyn. St. James is still considered the oldest of the royal palaces, and it is there the palace of St. James took on the administrative role of the royal household and was where royal announcements were officially announced.
Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in the Royal Chapel, and Charles I spent his final night there in relative luxury before walking long and lonely to Whitehall Palace to be executed on a cold winter's day. She can't be late, she's the main attraction of the day! Thousands of people came to see the spectacle.
Whitehall Palace was commissioned by Henry VIII in the early 16th century, and unfortunately only the banquet house, built by Inigo Jones in the early 17th century, has survived. The remainder of the palace was destroyed by fire in 1698. Even so, our guides always pinpoint where Charles I stepped from the window on the first floor onto the scaffold erected specifically for his execution in January 1649, just minutes after pm. The banquet house is the permanent remnant of a palace believed to be the largest in Europe, covering most of what is now Whitehall, the center of political administration and management in Westminster City.
Westminster is an area where nearly every building has architectural, historical, or cultural significance. The Palace of Westminster (known as the Houses of Parliament) was built in the 11th century. The Palace of Westminster was built during the reign of Edward the Confessor and was the royal residence of many kings until the 16th century. Unfortunately only part of it is still intact, and that is Westminster Hall. However, the story continues, and scandals and conspiracies are no less. The failed gunpowder conspiracy of 1605 is the most memorable one that many British households remember on November 5. The palace we see today with its stunning Gothic tower is a substitute for the fire that destroyed the original palace in 1834. She was attacked many times, including the Blitz during World War II, but survived! This undoubtedly shows the strength, toughness and toughness that a building this tall as a castle must pay attention to, a building that represents the faith of the nation that protects it.
When William, Duke of Normandy, invaded England with his army in 1066 to claim and fight for the English crown which he believed to be his, he would receive no answer. To celebrate his victory, William and his troops marched to London for the coronation and were crowned at Westminster Abbey on Christmas Day 1066.
The Tower of London is one of 23 castles William built to protect London from attack. The Tower of London's impressive structure exudes strength, strength and size, both visually and physically. It was strategically located on a hill on the north side of the River Thames and served as a fortress and gateway to London to protect the Normandy invasion from further revolts. As the Palace of Westminster is recognized by the United Nations for Education, the Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is also very important as a World Heritage Site.
At the Tower of London, your guide will be happy to explain its many uses throughout its long history. Apart from being a well-known site for the execution of A Lister in the Middle Ages and a bastion for Queen jewelry, it has its own zoo, mint and torture chamber and is home to the legend of the black raven.
