Description

See two top UK attractions in one day! This combination ticket includes entry to the magnificent Buckingham Palace and an extended visit to historical Stonehenge with convenient and comfortable transportation. You’ll begin by meeting your Golden Tours representative at 9.45am outside the Queens Gallery, Buckingham Palace, London SW1A 1AA. You will not be able to enter the Palace without seeing the rep first. 

Special Timed Entry to Buckingham Palace with Multimedia Tour

Visit the official London residence of Queen Elizabeth II with a special timed entry into the Royal Palace’s magnificent State Rooms. Open for just ten weeks a year, this is an incredible opportunity you won’t want to miss!

With a multimedia guide included in your visit, you’ll explore the 19 beautifully decorated rooms used by The Queen for State, ceremonial and official occasions. Discover sculptures, the finest furniture and the incredible 47-metre Picture Gallery. See the grandest of all the rooms, the White Drawing Room, which serves as a royal reception room, and the Throne Room, featuring the throne chairs used for Her Majesty’s coronation ceremony in 1953. 

In fact, this summer, to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, The State Rooms will display a series of official portraits by Dorothy Wilding taken shortly after The Queen’s Accession to the throne in 1952. These portraits later inspired The Queen’s image on postage stamps and in British embassies across the world until 1971. The exhibition will also feature The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara – a gift to Princess Victoria Mary of Teck, on her marriage to the future King George V in 1893.

This unique palace tour ends with a walk through the picturesque south garden before visitors are to make their own way to Victoria for the Stonehenge portion of the tour, where the coach will depart at 1.45pm. 

Stonehenge
Standing on Salisbury Plain since around 2500BC, the existence of this ancient stone circle at Stonehenge remains a mystery to this day! On your visit, discover the abundance of fascinating theories behind this prehistoric monument, from the belief it is a religious temple to an astronomical clock and even a Bronze Age burial ground!

As you explore, look out for Stone 56, the tallest of the stones and Stone 52, which has the name Wren carved into it. This was done by Sir Christopher Wren, the renowned architect who designed St Paul’s Cathedral! 

Before you leave, make sure to check out the Neolithic Houses by the visitor and exhibition centre. They’re closely modelled on the remains discovered in 2006 and 2007 near Stonehenge and were built around the same time as the stones. 

This tour finishes at approximately between 7.00pm and 8.00pm in Kensington.

This tour is unescorted.
