Buckingham Palace with Afternoon Tea

Be astounded by the grandeur and lavishness of Buckingham Palace's interior on this special tour which includes special timed entry tickets - ensuring you don't have to wait in the long ticket line - and finishes with afternoon tea at the Grosvenor Hotel in Victoria.

Buckingham Palace's State Rooms are only open for a limited amount of time, for 2 months each year, and thus an exploration of the rooms should certainly not be passed up.

Meet your tour representative at the Golden Tours Visitor Centre in Victoria and then take a short 10 minute walk to Buckingham Palace where you enjoy and independent audio tour of this famous site, residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837.

On arrival at the palace, take advantage of special timed entry, which is tantamount to ‘skip the line' entry.

Marvel at the splendour of the rooms, used on official occasions by The Queen to entertain her guests. Be dazzled by the beautiful ballroom and throne room, before ending your royal tour with a walk through the stunning South Garden.

After your visit to Buckingham Palace, you are free to take your afternoon tea at the Grosvenor Hotel in Victoria between 3.00pm and 4.30pm.

This indulgent treat consists of a delicious selection of handcrafted tea cakes, mini rich butter fruit scones, fruit preserves, Devonshire clotted cream and traditional open and closed finger sandwiches. Choose from an array of hand selected Tea Forte teas. The leisurely British tradition of afternoon tea will round off your royal day in style!
