This audio tour is terrific! A great way to orient yourself and learn about the various monuments and gardens along the way without being exhausting. I would allow more than one hour if you want to stop to take pictures.

Brian takes us around the seat of government and former palaces of the kings and queens of England. We hear all about the historic events which took place here as well as seeing great architecture such as the Houses of Parliament and Lambeth Palace. This was an excellent way to learn about the history of England as well as being really entertaining!
