If Monarchy is your thing and taking a peek behind the walls of how they live is on your list of UK ‘must dos’, then get excited, because the Royal Collection Trust has some good news.

The official residences of Her Majesty The Queen will reopen to the public from Thursday 23 July!

After the good news about the UKs reversing of lockdown was released, the RCT has been ready to go with throwing open the doors to some prized locations, like:

  • Windsor Castle
  • the Palace of Holyroodhouse
  • the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace, and
  • The Queen’s Galleries in London and Edinburgh

You’ll need to wear masks and adhere to the Covid-19 rules as you peruse collections, peek behind doors and enjoy exhibitions, like:

As well as Japan: Courts and Culture, originally due to open in June 2020, is now expected to open in Spring 2022
