Trip Report London: Tour of the Buckingham Palace State Rooms

Jump to last reply

We were in London for 4 nights last week. DH had a conference, so we were privileged to stay in the elegant St Ermin's Hotel, near Westminster.

More about that later. For now, I wanted to advise anyone going to London, to schedule a visit to the State Rooms' Diamond Jubilee exhibit. I bought the Royal Day Out ticket for about 30EU, which gave me three entries: the Royal Mews (stables), the Queen's Gallery display of Leonardo DaVinci's anatomical drawings, and the State Rooms with the special display of the Queen's diamonds. (As a bonus, they will stamp your tickets, which gives you free access to these exhibits for one year.)

This was well-worth the price, and probably took almost three hours. The State Rooms tour is very extensive, as you walk through room-after-room of elegance, and see the rooms where heads of state are entertained. It is fabulous. I highly recommend this. I believe it ends soon, as the summer season ends, so get there now is my advice.

More details about restaurants and other sites coming soon.
