Your day will start with a guided tour of the magnificent State Rooms, led by one of our expert guides.

You will then be free to explore the garden and see some of its most famous features, such as the plane trees planted by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, before enjoying a picnic on the lawn with your family and friends. You can purchase delicious refreshments from one of the many food stalls dotted around the garden, or bring your own food and drink.
