  • The residence is opened only in summer for a short time, and if you find yourself in London during that time recommend a guided tour of this building. The rooms are breath taking and the English Guide is extremely helpful and always tries to make himself understood even by foreigners. Highly recommended!

  • If you are a fan of the Royals, this is a must see! Present home to Charles and Camilla. Former home to the Queen Mother who was its longest inhabitant, living there for over 50 years. Only open in August. It is located right beside Buckingham Palace. What a lovely and cozy home! Tip: Buy the VIP ticket which gets you a guided tour inside, a souvenir book and a glass of champagne. Note that pics are not allowed inside, which is why I took photos of the guide book.
  • Beautiful part of British history. The home of a great man.
  • Disappointing visit except for diehard fans of the royal family. Neither the house nor the garden are very interesting. However, the guide was very enthusiastic and had a good sense of humour. Although she was knowledgeable about the people who had lived in the house, she had little to say on the furnishings and works of art, except for who sat on what chair or embroidered this or that.
  • Beautiful royal residence
  • Prince of Wales home. Fabulous
