Start off by passing by the stunning architecture of Westminster Abbey, a stellar monument hosting many royal events in London from weddings to coronations, before making your way into the City of London (also known as the Square Mile) to marvel at perhaps Sir Christopher Wren's greatest masterpiece - St Paul's Cathedral.

Changing of the Guards

Guards, dressed in red tunics, black trousers and bearskin hats, line up outside Buckingham Palace.

Next, head in direction of Buckingham Palace, the King's official residence in London, in time to watch the very popular Changing the Guard ceremony.

Yeoman Warders at the Tower of London
