Includes timed entrance to the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace

On one of our Buckingham Palace Tours for Groups, you will experience one of the most luxurious palaces in the world.

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK’s sovereigns since 1837. Today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch. Although in use for the many official events and receptions held by The Queen, the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are open to visitors every summer during August and September.
Buckingham Palace has 775 rooms. These include 19 State Rooms, 52 Royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 offices and 78 bathrooms. In measurements, the building is 108 metres across, 120 metres deep (including the central quadrangle) and 24 metres high.

Above all, when visiting Buckingham Palace, see the 19 magnificent State Rooms. These rooms provide the setting for special occasions and official entertaining.

Includes timed entrance to the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace.

Suggested itinerary by coach

Day 1

Arrival in London and rest of the day at leisure

If your time permits, we can suggest a Sunday afternoon visit to Windsor Castle, the Tower of London or Hampton Court to set the scene for your Royal short break to London. (Group entrance prices are available on request.)

Arrival in London maybe late afternoon. Your rooms will be ready from around 3.00pm, so if arriving earlier, why not do a spot of sightseeing in Central London or maybe explore the shops on Kensington High Street or in Notting Hill. The afternoon and evening are at your leisure. Perhaps dine in the one of the hotel’s restaurants or alternatively there are several restaurants, bars and pubs serving food in the area.

Day 2

Buckingham Palace

There will be a full English breakfast served in the hotel, before you make your way to Buckingham Palace for your timed entry.

Explore the lavishly furnished State Rooms of one of the world’s few remaining working royal palaces, and look out for some of the Royal Collection’s greatest treasures on display.

The State Rooms are the public rooms in the Palace where The Queen and members of the Royal Family receive and entertain their guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions. There are 19 State Rooms, which mainly reflect the taste of George IV, who commissioned the architect John Nash to transform Buckingham House into a grand palace in 1825. The State Rooms are furnished with many of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Van Dyck and Canaletto, sculpture by Canova, Sèvres porcelain, and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.
Many of the State Rooms have particular uses today. The Throne Room is used by The Queen for court ceremonies and official entertaining, and was the setting for the wedding photos of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The White Drawing Room, perhaps the grandest of all the State Rooms, serves as a royal reception room for The Queen and members of the Royal Family to gather before official occasions.

Highlights include:

  • Paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, Poussin, Canaletto and Claude
  • Sculpture by Canova and Chantrey
  • Exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain
  • Some of the finest English and French furniture in the world

The garden is open to walk through at the end of your visit during the summer in daylight. The Garden Café also provides beautiful views over the Palace lawns at the end of your visit.
