מה נעשה

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
Other things to note
If on the 2pm walk we will see a shortened Guard change at 4pm.
We will have an opportunity on the way for a short stop for you to buy drinks and visit a toilet.

Hi, I'm David and a retired Police Inspector from the London Metropolitan Police. I spent the last 9 years of my service 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. Follow me on instagram lombardi_bespoke_tours

David is a delightful, well-versed, friendly, and funny guide! He surely knows his history, and he can answer all the questions that we havw! You can tell his love for the city by the way he tell his stories… I especially love his stories about his time working for the Royal Family! And on top of that, as a true Londoner himself, he would give place recommendations that might spark your interest! Simply a lovely lovely tour, especially if you love history! Totally worth the price :)

David was the most wonderful host, full of so many interesting facts and told with such passion it was engaging throughout. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

MUST DO while in London!! Covers all the top London highlights with historical commentary. BEST part of the tour though (and what sets it apart from others) is the guide - David adds a special touch to the tour by sharing stories from his time on the Royal Guard. If you’re looking for a way to explore London - this is your tour!

My parents were coming over to visit London and I wanted to find an interesting tour that would give us all a sense of the history here. Our expectations were far surpassed. David is both a wealth of knowledge and a lovely person. And that is a combination that makes for a perfect tour. I never felt as though he was reading off a script. A question from anyone could bring us in different directions and there was always interesting stories or anecdotes that he could bring from his own personal experience, which brought the history to life. I couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Our one regret was that in the age of Covid, we didn't bring any cash to tip. The £15 fee does not do David justice - bring extra!

Had a great time with David. His prior experience adds so much to this tour. Lots of fun stories and insights. Just an extra sharp guy.
