Clarence House will be opening its doors to the public during the summer, allowing you to explore five of the ground-floor rooms which the Prince of Wales uses for official engagements. The house is also home to the Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla).

The arrangement of the rooms remains much as it was when the late Queen Mother was in residence. Her collection of art encompasses Faberge Eggs and 20th-century paintings by John Piper, Graham Sutherland, WS Sickert and Augustus John. There are also a lot of horse-related paintings (the Queen Mother definitely loved her gee-gees!).

Craig has been on this guided tour a couple of times in the past, and thinks it is definitely worth doing. It is not as grand as Buckingham Palace (it doesn't even come close), but it's certainly a lot more personal. One of the nicest things about visiting the house is seeing all of the family photos of William and Kate and Harry dotted around the tables. You can also have a nose around their bookcases as well, and see what they read in their spare time (it seems to be mainly art books, Dick Francis and PG Wodehouse novels).

Have a read of Craig's review of Clarence House on his blog before you go, to see what he thought.

If you don't mind spending a bit more money, then they also offer an Exclusive guided tour of Clarence House as well, which includes a glass of bubbly at the end. And you might be interested in Buckingham Palace Summer Opening as well.
