To mark the 70th birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales this year, visitors to the Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace will enjoy a special display featuring a number of works of art personally selected by His Royal Highness.
The Prince has enjoyed a life-long passion for art, inspired by the treasures in the Royal Collection. In the display, The Prince's favourite art works will be shown alongside works created by young artists supported by three charities which he has founded and is patron of: The Royal Drawing School, The Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts and Turquoise Mountain.
This was truly the highlight of my grad trip, thank you!
The best tour of my life!
With my love of all things Royal imagine my delight when I discovered that Buckingham Palace was to be open whilst we were in the UK and that it was doubled up with Windsor was just the icing on the cake. Nothing I can say will convey the absolute brilliance of walking through the oldest inhabited Royal Palace in the world or the main London residence of Her Majesty. Windsor was incredible and to try and describe it would be pointless but I will say that the ice cream there was the best I have ever had. Similarly Buckingham Palace is simply breathtaking my only disappointment was that you couldn't take photos inside, which is understandable, but even that couldn't dampen the absolute thrill I got from being there. If you get the chance to see both then don't miss it. Bath in the glory of two of the most beautiful palaces/castles in the world.
Excellent! Perfect opportunity to view and tour both palaces.
Absolutely fabulous, would do it again.
Loved Windsor Palace and the town. Buckingham Palace was amazing and very happy to be in London when the Queen wasn't! My only criticism of this tour was the lack of communication by the tour guides. We were told to be at the bus by 12:30pm after visiting Windsor Castle. Therefore, most of us took precious time to eat lunch because we knew Buckingham would be next. When we arrived at Buckingham, the guide said we had 1 hour to eat lunch before our tour. That was 1 hour we could have used at Windsor Castle instead of eating. We were not able to finish seeing Windsor Castle and that was extremely disturbing. In addition, the guide took us to Buckingham, gave us our tickets, and left. She never said that we were on our own after that. Of course, we figured it out but customer service was lacking on this particular tour.
The tour was good but for the Windsor Castle we had to do a big line to enter, even if advised in the description of the tour that you will skip the lines. The Buckingham Palace was great.
The trip was great! The only drawback was that I had to wait an hour between Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace outside of Buckingham Palace before going in. This could've maybe been planned a bit better to have a bit more time at Windsor Castle. However, everything else went very smoothly.
Great opulent castles. But kinda crowded and un-guided. Oh, and no pictures allowed inside!!!
Loved both Buckingham and Windsor! The tour guide was average-a little scatterbrained.
