- Meeting Point
Queen's Gallery Entrance
Your Expert Guide will be waiting to greet you at the entrance to the Queen's Gallery (the art museum located just around the facade of Buckingham Palace). The Queens Gallary is a 10-minute walk from London Victoria Station and Victoria Underground Station. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of the tour (meeting at 9:00 am and the tour starts at 9:15 am).
- The State Rooms, Buckingham Palace
Buckingham Palace serves as the official London residence of His Majesty The King and is one
of the few remaining working royal palaces in the world today.
Each summer, when the Palace is not being used in its official capacity, visitors can enjoy the
19 magnificent State Rooms that provide the setting for ceremonial occasions and official
entertaining by members of the Royal Family. The rooms are furnished with many of the
greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and
Van Dyck, sculpture by Canova, exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain, and some of the finest
English and French furniture in the world.
Visitors to the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace will see the White Drawing Room,
perhaps the most beautiful of all the State Rooms with its spectacular crystal chandelier, the
Music Room, where guests are presented on the occasion of a State Visit, and the Throne
Room, which was the setting for the formal photographs following the wedding of Their Royal
Highnesses The Prince and Princess of Wales.
Following a visit, the Palace's Garden Café offers the perfect location to enjoy a selection of
light refreshments while taking in panoramic views of the lake across the lawn before visiting
the Garden Shop.
- Windsor Castle
The town of Windsor is best known for its historical links to the British royal family, and it is suitably steeped in pageantry and history. Towering over the rest of the town is Windsor Castle, the ancestral home of the English and the later British monarchy and the largest inhabited castle in the world.
Windsor Castle has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years and is today one of the official residences of His Majesty The King.
Occupying over 10.5 hectares, the Castle offers a varied day out for visitors, including a visit to the magnificent State Apartments and St George's Chapel. The Castle's State Apartments are furnished with some of the finest works from the Royal Collection, reflecting the changing tastes of the Castle's royal occupants, particularly those of Charles II and George IV.
Among the masterpieces on display are paintings by Holbein, Rubens and Van Dyck, Sèvres porcelain and exquisite English and French furniture. Many works of art are still in the historic settings for which they were first collected or commissioned by the kings and queens who have lived at Windsor.
