Did you know that you can combine a visit to the Buckingham Palace Summer Opening with a tour of the gardens as well?
Where can I purchase tickets for the Garden Highlights Tour 2015? The official site says they are sold out. Thank you!
if they're sold out, then that's it. as far as we know the official site is the only place that sells them.
it's still worth doing the state rooms on their own though, because you do get to see a little bit of the garden. but it's only really the lawn at the back of the veranda (where they hold all the tea parties), plus the path up the side -- you don't get to see any of the flowers beds though. what you see is quite bland... but it's still definitely worth doing, because the inside of the palace is the best bit anyway
