Full description
Meet your guide at the Piccadilly Arcade, in front of the Beau Brummel Statue. Start your journey by hearing stories about stylish fashionista George “Beau” Brummel and why it took him 5 hours to dress every morning. Afterwards, follow your guide to St James’s Palace, which was built by Henry VIII, the King who had six wives and beheaded 2 of them. You will hear everything about life at the Tudor court and how courtiers feared the King. Stroll through the beautiful St James’s Park amid birdsongs and wild-rustling trees before you reach Buckingham Palace, the only working Palace in the World. Today it is a place where the Queen resides, but before Queen Victoria, it was just an additional estate which was expanded by George IV. Discover why George IV became unpopular and investigate to see if he genuinely poisoned his wife. Next, see the statue of Robert Burns, the distinctive Scottish poet. Although most of his poetry was about love, he didn’t treat women well enough and changed his favours quite fast. Hear stories about Oscar Wilde’s life in London and why he had to hide that he was homosexual. Continue towards the National Gallery, and learn more about James Bond. Hear stories about the first British spies and what 007 truly means. Walk towards Carnaby street, the music paradise of the 1960s and hear stories about Mick Jagger and his greatest love affairs. Finish your tour at the oldest theatre in London, where Charles II found his favourite mistress, Nell Gwynn.
