Royal Collection Trust closure guidance

Release date: Wednesday, 18 March 2020

The safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff are our priority.  Therefore, in line with Government and Public Health England advice, Windsor Castle, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Royal Mews, The Queen’s Galleries in London and Edinburgh, and all Royal Collection Trust shops will close temporarily from Saturday, 21 March 2020 as a precautionary measure.

The last day of operation will be Friday, 20 March. Ticket sales for visits from 21 March until 1 May 2020 will be halted, and anyone who has booked to visit between those dates will automatically be refunded.

As this is a rapidly evolving situation, we are unable to confirm a date on which the Palaces, Galleries and shops will reopen, but will monitor Government and Public Health England advice.
