Description

Join this tour through the elite streets of West London, the home of billionaire emigres, financiers, and aristocracy.

* Become acquainted with two prim-and-proper neighbourhoods that house the city’s elite. 
* Experience the heritage and history of the neighbourhood’s gleaming facades and celebrated museums. 
* Visit the pristine gardens outside of **Kensington Palace**. 
* See **The Victoria and Albert Museum**, the world's largest museum of decorative arts and design that houses a collection of over 4.5 million objects.

Once renowned for its wild criminality, this area is now a playground for the rich, and synonymous with luxury brands such as Harrods. But unknown to many, it is a love story that truly drives the history of this area - the relationship between Queen Victoria and her Consort, Prince Albert. Join this tour to learn more about the Royal couple and the buildings they left behind them here in London’s ‘Albertopolis.’

On this tour you will see some of London’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, and hear the stories behind world famous luxury institutions such as Harrods. Travelling along Exhibition Road - named for the Great Exhibition of 1851, a landmark event in the history of London - you will learn of the fascinating histories of some of London’s most important centres of intellectual excellence.

Above all, you will learn of the life and times of Queen Victoria and her husband Albert - the world in which they lived, the beginning, course, and ending of their marriage, and influence they had on wider society.
