I loved the tour and some of the predesignated places we had on our tour. The staterooms were amazing. My tour guide was good but made disparaging comments about LA and California during the tour. My fiance and I are from San Diego and found this offensive, unrelated to the tour in London and biased. She knows nothing of where our political attitudes lie and obviously knows nothing about California. I hope in her future tours she will remain more detached from her personal feelings and opinions and stay on the focus of the tour in London.

Great opportunity to visit the Palace and have first hand experience of such a wonderful and historic building. Stunning architecture.

What happened is that nowhere did it say that it was in English, and we spoke Spanish, so we did not understand anything of what the guide said, until we entered the palace and they gave us the palace guide with options in Spanish.

Very well organised with very helpful Palace staff. Was disappointed with the choice at the on site cafe and felt the staff and facilities there did not reflect the customer service I'd expect from the venue

Good experience - amazing place But after we walked thru the gardens to exit we were not sure which direction to go. It was a bit confusing but a lovely tour.

Explore a working palace

The Buckingham Palace acts as the London residence of His Majesty the King, and one of the few working royal palaces to remain in the world today. Every summer, the doors of the palace are opened for visitors from across the globe to learn facts and discover secrets about the Palace and the State Rooms. The State Rooms have been dubbed the “heart” of Buckingham Palace and include 19 plush rooms, ornated with treasures from the Royal Collection. Some of these treasures include paintings by Canaletto, Rubens, Poussin, and Rembrandt and extravagant sculptures by Canova.

Learn as you go

Feel free to plug in your multimedia audio guide and walk through the decked-up rooms. Learn about the historical importance of the State Rooms and, in effect, the Palace. Find out how the formerly known “Buckingham House” transformed into the royal palace we know it to be today. End the tour by taking a stroll along the south side of the Palace Garden. The serenity and peaceful surroundings of the Garden will only heighten the views of the palace from this stunning viewpoint.
