Buckingham Palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty the Queen. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today. For a limited time each summer when the palace is not being used in its official capacity, visitors are welcomed to walk in the footsteps of the Queen and explore the nineteen lavish State Rooms which form the heart of the working palace. These are opulently decorated and furnished with the finest treasures from the Royal Collection.
You’ll explore the State Rooms with a multimedia guide so you can enjoy this at your own pace. At the end of your tour, you’ll walk along the south side of the Palace garden, where you’ll meet your guide before the next part of your Royal journey.
You’ll board your luxury coach and take a short journey to Windsor, where you’ll enjoy a delicious 2-course hot lunch at the neighbouring Harte & Garter Hotel, before exploring the world’s largest occupied castle.
Windsor Castle has been home to the Royal family for over 900 years. You’ll explore the castle grounds and the magnificent fourteenth-century St. George's Chapel, one of the most beautiful examples of medieval church architecture in England and a burial place of kings and queens, including Henry VIII. A visit to the castle includes the exquisite State Apartments, St George’s Chapel and Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House.
