The State Rooms, Buckingham Palace & Sparkling Tea at The Royal Horseguards for Two
In a nutshell
- A truly Royal experience
- Visit the State Rooms
- Enjoy a sparkling afternoon tea at The Royal Horseguards Hotel
Enjoy a day out visiting Buckingham Palace which serves as the official London residence of His Majesty The King, and is one of the few remaining working royal palaces in the world today.
Each summer when the Palace is not being used in its official capacity, visitors can enjoy the 19 magnificent State Rooms that provide the setting for ceremonial occasions and official entertaining by members of the Royal Family.
The rooms are furnished with many of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyck, sculpture by Canova, exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain, and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.
Visitors to the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace will see the White Drawing Room, perhaps the most beautiful of all the State Rooms with its spectacular crystal chandelier, the Music Room, where guests are presented on the occasion of a State Visit, and the Throne Room, which was the setting for the formal photographs following the wedding of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince and Princess of Wales.
After your visit you can talk a stroll along The Mall to The Royal Horseguards Hotel to enjoy a relaxing dining experience.
An impressive historic building in London, The Royal Horseguards Hotel is situated on the River Thames at the Embankment. It encompasses two iconic buildings: The National Liberal Club which has played host to historical icons including Churchill, Gladstone and Lloyd-George; and the club’s magnificent apartments which were previously the home of the first chief of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service.
