Have you been to London and are missing the sights and sounds of this glorious city, or want to discover more about sites that you recognise from film and TV?
Our virtual tour will feature the City of Westminster and explore how this area of London was shaped by the pomp and majesty of kings and queens, whilst political power now rests with politicians housed in a royal palace. From Trafalgar Square, a place of celebration and protest, we will visit such places as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, and hear why it is a church like no other in the UK.
Discover how a royal stable gave way to a square, why a wealthy young woman was honoured with one of the first non-royal female statues in London, and how a leper hospital became a palace. See where Henry Vlll had his tilt-yard, hear how millions came to remember and pay homage at a tomb of an unknown warrior, and how a reluctant second son took on the mantle of kingship.
Our Pomp & Power walk may have some surprises for you as we wend our way from the heart of London to the heart of the Nation.
Join us for a 45 minute virtual tour, followed by a Q&A session with your Westminster guide, all from the comfort of your armchair.
