Buckingham Palace is recognised around the world as the home of The Queen, the focus of national and royal celebrations as well as the backdrop to the regular Changing the Guard ceremony.
This year's special exhibition Royal Animals, will focus on the Royal Family's interest in animals, drawing together works of art from across the Royal Collection acquired from the reign of George III to the present day. The first exhibition on this subject in over 50 years, it will explore the history of animals in the royal residences, from the giraffe presented to George IV as a gift from Egypt, to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's enthusiasm for pet dogs and the continued importance of horses in modern times, during events such as Trooping the Colour and Royal Ascot.
We are in Buckingham Palace from 1200 – 1500 and aim to drop you off beforehand at around 1100. Afterwards we will make our way to Royal Windsor where there will be some free time.
