Full description
You will meet your guide in front of St James' Palace, where the first Brexit happened in 1534 led by Henry VIII. You will hear about its consequences, and how Elizabeth I had to excommunicate with the Catholic church. You will then continue your way towards Buckingham Palace, to see if the Queen is at home or out on her state duties. You will walk through the oldest Royal Park in London, purchased by the first Brexiter Henry VIII, who used this park for deer hunting.

You will walk to the Houses of Parliament, where the Queens Speech was delayed in 2018 by Theresa May. Due to Brexit, the Queen has reduced traditional ceremonial elements for her speech. It was the only time in history when traditional royal procession was scaled back, and the Queen didn’t use her traditional horse-drawn carriage for her speech.

You will then continue your way to 10 Downing Street, where all Prime ministers have resided since 1732, from first prime minister Robert Walpole through to Teresa May today. Next, walk towards Parliament to see where UK government for the first time has announced that it is considering options to delay Brexit. You will stop by the iconic and notorious protester "Mr. Stop Brexit", who left his job in order to protest every day. Rain or shine, Mr. Stop Brexit is always there. He even upstaged a BBC interview with a placard declaring "Stop Brexit Mess!".

You will be able to get a picture with him, before walking further to discover the Department for Education, where the man who started the Brexit idea worked. Dominic Cummings continues to be something of a mystery to the British public, and David Cameron even branded him a “career psychopath”. Dominic Cummings spent 3 years in Russia, was the Kremlin involved in backing a positive Brexit vote? You will discover this on your tour. Afterwards, you will explore "Brexit: Uncivil War" movie locations. Benedict Cumberbatch even shaved his famous hair to play Dominic Cummings character. By the end of this tour you will become a Brexit expert!
