Royal Day Out - Mews, Gallery & Buckingham Palace

Royal Day Out - Mews, Gallery & Buckingham Palace

Departing Suffolk & Essex - Join us for a Royal Day Out visiting the Queen's Gallery, the Royal Mews and of course the historical Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace - Although in use for the many official events and receptions held by The Queen, areas of Buckingham Palace are opened to visitors on a regular basis. The State Rooms of the Palace are open to visitors during the Annual Summer Opening. They are lavishly furnished with some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection - paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, Poussin, Canaletto and Claude; sculpture by Canova and Chantrey; exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain; and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.

 

The Exhibition for 2018 - The Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace will include an exhibition that marks the 70th birthday of The Prince of Wales.

 

Royal Mews - One of the finest working stables in existence, the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace provides a unique opportunity for visitors to see the work of the Royal Household department that provides road transport for The Queen and members of the Royal Family by both horse-drawn carriage and motor car.

The Royal Mews has a permanent display of State vehicles. These include the magnificent Gold State Coach used for Coronations and those carriages used for Royal and State occasions, State Visits, weddings and the State Opening of Parliament. A State motor vehicle is also usually on display.

 

The Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace is a permanent space dedicated to changing exhibitions of items from the Royal Collection, the wide-ranging collection of art and treasures held in trust by The Queen for the Nation. Constructed forty years ago on the west front of Buckingham Palace out of the bomb-damaged ruins of the former private chapel, the Gallery has recently been redeveloped.

 

Please note: We recommend passengers take their own lunch on this excursion.
