On Thursday, 26 and Monday,  30 August, celebrate a royal summer in the Buckingham Palace Garden at our Family Festival!

Discover hidden areas of the garden which are not usually seen by visitors in a fascinating Family Tour, led by one of our brilliant wardens. You will be able to find out all about the amazing stories and history of this special place. Tours will run at 11:30, 12:30, 13:30, 14:30 and 15:30, and are available on a first come, first serve basis. The tour will take approximately half an hour.

As you explore the garden, join in our brilliant activities at our arts and crafts stations. Our activities are suitable for families of all ages, and are inspired by the amazing surroundings of the Buckingham Palace Garden. From making a zebra hobby horse to creating a beautiful nature crown, there will be something for every little visitor.

In addition to the art and craft activities there will be family trails to complete.

All activities be managed in line with COVID-secure procedures. Please see our Welcome Back page for more information.
