Take a guided tour of one of the world's most enchanting - but least-seen - gardens, hidden behind the walls of Buckingham Palace. On this great-value coach trip you'll also visit the Palace itself to see the magnificent State Rooms and a special exhibition that reveals the secrets of a 'Royal Welcome'.
Single rooms are available for a supplement
Leaving the local area in the early morning we'll head to Royal Windsor. Wander the pretty streets of this lovely riverside town, or pre-purchase tickets to Windsor Castle to see the magnificent State Apartments.
After a pleasant afternoon in Windsor we'll continue to our overnight hotel.
Today we head to Buckingham Palace for a guided tour of this iconic royal residence's delightful gardens. Discover the beautiful herbaceous border, the wisteria-clad summer house, the Rose Garden, the enormous Waterloo Vase and the Palace Tennis Court on which King George VI and Fred Perry 'crossed racquets' in the 1930s.
Your visit will also include time to explore the Palace itself: the Grand Staircase, the State Dining Room, the magnificent Ballroom, the Music Room and the Picture Gallery. Wander through the 'Royal Welcome' exhibition, which reveals the work that goes on behind every official visit to Palace. Enjoy views over the Garden's famous lawn from the West Terrace's new Garden Cafe and browse the Royal Collection Shop's exclusive merchandise.
After your time at the Palace you'll take a short, afternoon 'Royal London' sightseeing tour before we begin our journey home, arriving back in the local area by mid to late evening.
