Buckingham Palace, the grand and iconic London residence of His Majesty the King is an absolute must-see on any visit to London. A fully working royal palace, housing not only The King, but serving as the administrative headquarters of the Royal Household.
The 19 State Rooms are exquisitely furnished with fine examples of French and English antique furniture and display some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including works by Rubens, Canaletto and Rembrandt, sculpture by Canova and porcelain by Sèvres.
Often called the ‘walled oasis in the middle of London', the gardens of Buckingham Palace are a true sight to behold. Home to 30 different species of bird and over 350 different wild flowers, there is plenty to see and enjoy. Visitors finish their tour with a walk along the south side of the garden, taking in views of the famous lake and the west front of the palace.
Extend your day with a visit to the Royal Mews - select either the 10:45am or 1:45pm timeslot
Visit His Majesty The King’s official London residence and see two fascinating parts of Buckingham Palace. First, take a walk around the Royal Mews before entering the State Rooms and exploring the exquisite and historical rooms containing precious pieces from The Royal Collection.
Begin with a look around the amazing Royal Mews, where you will see iconic vehicles are used for State visits, the State Opening of Parliament, official engagement and, of course, coronations and royal weddings. Get up-close to the Gold State Coach which has been used for every coronation since George IV. The newest addition to the fleet is the Diamond Jubilee State Coach, a beautiful vehicle made especially for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. The vehicle combines classic style and craftsmanship with more modern technologies – an extraordinary example of modern tradition.
