Buckingham Palace Tickets and Windsor Castle Tour

Royal enthusiasts will be in their element on this double header tour which begins with a visit to Her Majesty The Queen’s official London residence, Buckingham Palace, before undertaking an extended tour of Windsor Castle.

Get ready for a Royal day out on this tour which combines a fascinating exploration of Buckingham Palace with a visit to Windsor Castle.

Part 1: Buckingham Palace - Special Timed Entry with Multimedia Tour

Special timed entry ensures a breathtaking visit to the official residence of Britain’s sovereigns since 1837.

Open for just 8 weeks a year, viewing the State rooms is an opportunity not to be missed! Marvel at the splendor of the rooms, used on official occasions by The Queen to entertain her guests.

Be dazzled by the beautiful ballroom, throne room and more, before ending your tour with a walk through the stunning South Garden.

Summer 2022 Exhibition - this summer, to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, The State Rooms will display a series of official portraits by Dorothy Wilding taken shortly after The Queen’s Accession to the throne in 1952. These portraits later inspired The Queen’s image on postage stamps and in British embassies across the world until 1971. The exhibition will also feature The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara – a gift to Princess Victoria Mary of Teck, on her marriage to the future King George V in 1893.
