Summer at the Palace

About Summer at the Palace

Join us over the summer to explore the Palace and gardens with our new Family Trail. Find out what happens during a royal visit, what you might eat at a Garden Party and where HM The Queen holds her meetings. Don't forget to make time for a visit to our Family Room where you can dress up in historical costumes and choose from a selection of stories and games.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Summer at the Palace are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
