The Garden Highlights Tour includes the beautiful Herbaceous Border, the summer house, the Rose Garden, the enormous Waterloo Vase and the Palace tennis court, where King George VI and Fred Perry played in the 1930s.

How it works:

  • Your visit will start by touring the 19 magnificent State Rooms of Buckingham Palace, with a complimentary multimedia guide available in nine languages. 
  • After the State Rooms there is time for you to take in the panoramic view of the lawn from the Garden Café on the West Terrace and to visit the Garden Shop.
  • Your Garden Highlights Tour will start from near the steps on the West Terrace, 2 hours and 15 minutes after your State Rooms entry time and will last 45 minutes. The tour starting location is clearly signposted. The guided tour of the gardens will take place in English.
  • Please allow around 3-3.5 hours for the full experience at Buckingham Palace.
