    Enjoy a summer’s day out at Buckingham Palace and combine a visit to the State Rooms with a guided walking tour of the famous Palace Garden. The Garden Highlights Tour explains the history of the Garden, taking you to the beautiful Herbaceous Border, the summer house and Rose Garden, the enormous Waterloo Vase and the Palace tennis court, where King George VI and Fred Perry played in the 1930s.

    Between your self-guided multimedia tour of the State Rooms and guided tour of the Garden, the itinerary allows time for your group to take in the panoramic views of the lawn and the lake, enjoy tea and cakes from the Garden Café and to visit the Garden Shop.

    Please note, The State Rooms, Buckingham Palace operates a timed-admission system. The admission time you select will be for your State Rooms entry. You will tour the State Rooms with a complimentary multimedia guide. 

    Your Garden Highlights Tour will start 2 hours and 15 minutes after your State Rooms entry time and will last 45 minutes. Meet for the Garden Highlights tour at the bottom of the steps in to the Garden when you leave the State Rooms.

    You should allow around 3-3.5 hours for the full experience at Buckingham Palace.
