A few weeks ago, Lara was lucky enough to be invited to a preview of the spectacular Buckingham Palace Gardens. If you are London based and haven’t booked your tickets yet, read on...From July until September, the 39-acre grounds of Her Majesty The Queen’s official London residence is open to the public for the first time. Visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour of highlights such as the 156-metre Herbaceous Border, plane trees planted by and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert and views of the island and its beehives across the 3.5-acre lake. Despite its urban location, the garden is home to a remarkable array of flora and fauna, including rare native plants seldom seen in London. Families can enjoy one of the trails or art and crafts activities (every Monday in August) and as part of two Family Festival days on 26 and 30 August, where Warden-led family tours will also be available. The added chance to enjoy a picnic (the first time this has been done since 2012) on one of the sweeping lawns makes this a truly memorable experience for all the family. Tickets are in high demand so you’ll need to be quick. Pre-booking is essential. Link in bio to book.
