Why locals recommend it
A visit to London’s most famous address is a must for any royals fan. You’ll visit the ballroom where state banquets are held and walk in the footsteps of HMQ leading 007 through the palace in the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony film. Picture yourself as a guest at William and Kate’s wedding, when Prince Harry turned the throne room into a disco. Buy a ticket for a curated garden tour. It’s the biggest private garden in London and very beautiful, with a 400-year-old tree and 30 bird species. The Queen keeps queen bees and makes her own honey. Get your ticket stamped by palace staff to go back for free for a year.
