    As part of a visit to Buckingham Palace, combine a visit to the State Rooms with a guided walking tour of the history and highlights of Buckingham Palace Garden with one of our expert Wardens. Described as 'a walled oasis in the middle of London', it boasts more than 350 types of wildflowers, over 200 trees and a three-acre lake.

    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 with a self-guided tour of the 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 around 45 minutes. The tour starting location is clearly signposted. 
    • The guided tour of the gardens will take place in English.
    • This is a walking tour and takes place in all weather, unless it is unsafe to do so.
    • Please allow around 3-3.5 hours for the full experience at Buckingham Palace.


    If you are visiting with children you might prefer our Family Garden Highlights Tour which runs on Mondays during school holidays. Read more about the Family Garden Highlights Tour.
