Westminster London

London Self-Guided Walking Tour
Parliament to Palace

This self-guided walking tour will take you through the City of Westminster, which is the heart of the UK government, starting at the Houses of Parliament and finishing at Buckingham Palace, the London home of the British Monarch. Along the way, we will stop at Westminster Abbey, Downing Street, The Horse Guards, The Mall and St James’s Palace (the official home of the British Monarch). 


Many first-time visitors to London will want to know about the general history of the country and to see some of the UK’s most famous buildings. This walking tour will do both. We will also delve deeply into the stories of the Kings and Queens who led the nation and see some of the houses they built and lived in. That story goes right up to the present day with our current monarch and heir to the throne. 


London has a fascinating history and I want to tell you the stories that I find most interesting. I’m also a visitor to this country even though I’ve now been here for over 30 years. Please come along on the journey where I will tell you stories that both first-time and return visitors will find educational and entertaining. 


Your guide will be Daniel. Originally, from New York, Daniel moved to London as a student. He currently works at the National Portrait Gallery and has previously worked in all the major London museums including the British Museum, National Gallery, V&A, Science Museum and others. Daniel is an official tour guide and gained his first qualification in 2018. Daniel is an art historian with a love of social history and is available for private walking and museum tours.
