On this coach day trip to London we include a 2 course lunch at the Rembrandt Hotel in Knightsbridge before visiting Buckingham Palace.
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.
Today the State Rooms are used extensively by The Queen and Members of the Royal Family to receive and entertain their guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions. For a short period during Summer, when The Queen makes her annual visit to Scotland, the Palace's nineteen state rooms are open to visitors.
The 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 coach day trip also includes the 2011 exhibition at the annual Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace which brings together masterpieces by Carl Fabergé, from Imperial Easter Eggs and dazzling jewel-encrusted boxes to miniature carvings of favourite royal pets. Royal Fabergé reveals how the world’s finest collection of work by the great Russian goldsmith and jeweller has been created by successive generations of the British Royal Family.
Includes Buckingham Palace entry ticket, return travel by coach and 2 course lunch at the Rembrandt Hotel.
