During our recent trip to London, we had the good fortune to be able to reserve in advance a 4 hour tour of Buckingham Palace. It was arranged by the The United Kingdom’s National Trust, and it included the Palace State Rooms, the Mews where the Carriages and Horses are tended to, the rear of the Palace where the Royal Children play, and the various Royal Apartments inside the Palace. We also were able to visit a special exhibit entitled “The Royal Children”. This included an exhibit of various toys and games used by the Royal Children over the last 100 years. Very interesting to say the least.
We were allowed to walk through the Palace with a guide who explained the day-to-day operation of the Palace, and various interesting facts about the Palace and the various inhabitants over the years.
If you ever have the chance to visit London, by all means go online to the National Trust website and see if they are scheduling tours. They are limited to certain times of the year, and you must book in advance to assure availability.
