This special tour of The Queen's official residence in Scotland highlights both the Palace's dramatic past as well as its important role today.

In the company of an expert guide, you will enjoy a private tour of the State Apartments once the Palace doors have closed to visitors for the day.

An Exclusive Evening Tour offers a unique opportunity to go 'behind the ropes' in selected rooms and includes the West Drawing Room, used by members of the Royal Family as a private sitting room and not normally open to the public. It is among the most beautiful rooms in the Palace and boasts one of the finest 17th-century plasterwork ceilings.

Your ticket also includes a glass of champagne, a copy of the official guidebook and 20% discount in the shop.

Tickets must be pre-booked. There is limited availability, with a maximum number of 30 places on each tour.
