Special Interest tours

Special Interest tours

Each of our Director’s Tours is personalised to your needs, and for groups we do what we can to please everyone. However, we do have a few subjects of special interest we can include within your visit if you’d so like.

Specialist talks and ‘lates’ in the past have covered:

  • Horse Guards from Around the World: with a special look at the Indian Presidential Bodyguard
  • Royal Lives, Royal Wives: 350 years of Royal Consorts
  • Heads, Hooves and Horror stories: a Halloween special
  • Christina Broom: Soldiers & Suffragettes

Just let us know when you’re booking your tour if you have a special subject of interest in mind and we’ll do whatever we can to help you delve further down the rabbit hole …

Historic British tourist attraction with wonderful statues and buildings! The horses were beautiful and a must to see when in London.
