A Special virtual tour to celebrate the Queen, from cot to coronation
Queen Elizabeth II is the most famous Londoner of all. London is where she was born, where she married, where she keeps her jewels, where she was crowned and where she lives.
Join us as we follow the life of a young princess who wasn’t expected to be queen and her journey from Mayfair in London where she was born, to her childhood home in Piccadilly that was bombed in the war, to her home Buckingham Palace and to Westminster Abbey where she was crowned. Let’s follow in royal footsteps from cot to coronation, on this fascinating journey.
Who is the tour guide?
I’m Loona Hazarika – I’ve been a London tour guide for 16 years and I’ve guided hundreds of people around my birthplace, London. I was trained by the British Museum where I gave some of their official tours and I recorded the audio guides at the Genocide Museum in Rwanda. I’ve always been passionate about history and have a Masters degree from the University of Cambridge. I’ve made appearances on historical TV documentaries such as BBC TV’s The ‘Hairy Builder’, SKY Atlantic’s ‘Urban Secrets’ and BBC1’s The Repair Shop’
“Exceptionally well presented and most informative and was one of the most professionally delivered on line lectures that I have attended.”
I had not managed to join a tour by Loona before and was very pleasantly surprised at the professionalism, knowledge, delivery and attention to detail displayed. The talk was on line and dealt with that area of London close to and including Buckingham palace. It was exceptionally well presented and most informative and was one of the most professionally delivered on line lectures that I have attended. Priced at under £10 it represented very good value for money and I look forward to attending future tours by Loona. Martin Nicholls
“A first class tour guide, an excellent group facilitator, inspiring, enthusiastic and with endless historical knowledge “
Loona is a first class tour guide, an excellent group facilitator and a charming person. He is inspiring,enthusiastic and with endless historical knowledge – which makes me hungry for more. We covered past history (oh so colourful…talking about the inspiration and resilience of people) and right up to the present day….Loona had a story for everything.I won’t spoil it for you by sharing too much ..just to say it really gave me an insight and food for thought.

“Head and shoulders above other tours”
From my experience Loona’s tours are head and shoulders above other tours. I will definitely be going on more tours with him and am going to enquire about a tailor made tour with him too. Julie Bennett, tour guide
