Meet your local guide at the Palace, who will welcome you and provide background information about the palace and the royal family, after which you’ll have the rare chance to visit the inside of the royal residence: Buckingham Palace. The palace opens its doors to visitors for a limited time each year and it seems that just about everyone would like to get inside! Your experience finishes out with a traditional English afternoon tea in a luxurious setting near to the Palace.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh open the doors of Buckingham Palace to visitors just once a year for two months. This is the real home of Queen Elizabeth II, boasting lavish apartments, sparkling chandeliers, and sumptuous furnishings. These rooms house some of the greatest treasures of the Royal Collection, such as exquisite pieces of Sèvres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.
