If you haven't been inside Buckingham Palace here is your chance. It was fantastic and worth every penny/pound. It took about two hours to get to the Gardens.....the time just flew by with the help of an excellent complimentary audio commentary. You went at your own pace and it was so well organised, you were never hurried and it was never packed. They even built in sit down time to capture the moment.

My family and I booked the Buckingham Palace tour on the 5th of September 2011 and it was a wonderful experience. We hardly queued to pick our tickets and were inside the palace (after the security scan) within 15 minutes. We will use Golden Tours again for future trips.

For my husband's 75th birthday, we decided to return to London, Paris and Scotland for a few weeks. In our planning, I checked into taking a tour of the Buckingham Palace but found that all tours were booked through them, so I then did some research and discovered Golden Tours, contacted them via email and was able to book through them. Upon our date, we took our email confirmation to the ticket office and were given two tickets without a problem. We thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this tour and are happy to promote Golden Tours. We will use them in the future.

Buckingham Palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty The Queen, as well as the administrative headquarters of the Royal Household. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today.
What there is to see
The 19 State Rooms form the heart of the working palace and are lavishly furnished with some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection - paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Poussin and Canaletto; sculpture by Canova; exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain; and some of the finest English and French furniture.
The Palace is very much a working building and the centrepiece of Britain's constitutional monarchy. It houses the offices of those who support the day-to-day activities and duties of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and their immediate family.
Royal Childhood exhibition
From well-loved toys and treasured family gifts to tiny childhood outfits, a special exhibition at Buckingham Palace will give an unprecedented glimpse into life as a young member of the royal family growing up at Buckingham Palace.
Spanning more than 250 years, Royal Childhood brings together objects from the Royal Collection, the Royal Archives and the private collections of members of the Royal Family, as well as previously unseen photographs and film footage.
Described as a 'walled oasis in the middle of London', the Palace's garden is home to thirty different species of bird and more than 350 different wild flowers, some extremely rare. Visitors end their tour with a walk along the south side of the garden, with splendid views of the west front of the Palace and the famous lake.
Audio tours are included in the admission price and are available in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Russian and Brazilian Portuguese.
