The most exclusive tour in town is back for summer.
Unless you’re planning to be elected a head of state sometime in the next few months, this is probably your only chance to get inside Buckingham Palace this year. On July 25th, the Palace’s devilishly decadent State Rooms will be once again open to the public for ten weeks, and tickets to the 2020 season are on sale now. So, like a very nosey neighbour, it’s time to have a peek inside!
When you walk through the Palace doors, you’ll be transported to a world of decadence. On the grand tour are several supremely ornate rooms, which would give even Liberace a serious case of house envy.
The Throne Room is where one would park one’s royal behind if one lived here, whilst the White Drawing Room is a mirage of white and gold. You can up your dinner game with a visit to the Ballroom, soak up the culture in the Picture Gallery, and pose like your duke or duchess of choice on the Grand Staircase, which begins this unforgettable tour.
The tours are running until October 4th, and there are a couple of things to remember. For starters, there’s no photography allowed, so selfies with members of the Royal Household are out of the question, and there’s also no chance of you nabbing one of Victoria’s dresses either. You’re a guest after all, so you’d best behave like one…
