Buckingham Palace Summer Opening
For fans of the Royal Family this is a great way to take a peek at lives behind closed doors. During the summer Buckingham Palace arranges special tours inside the Queen’s official residence. Highlights include a special exhibition this year which incorporates an unprecedented array of the dress, uniforms and robes worn for the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 60 years ago. The State Rooms are included in the tour; this is where the Queen receives guests and does her queenly job. You can see paintings by Van Dyck and Canaletto and sculpture by Canova. So get your Royalty on and have a nose around.
