The gardens of Buckingham Palace are to open for guided tours this spring, letting you in when they are not usually open to the public.

During the 90-minute tour, people will be given special access to the whole 39-acre grounds in springtime, when the garden is at its fullest. Throughout the season daffodils, primroses and bluebells will emerge in the meadows and the camellias, magnolias and azaleas around the garden will bloom.

Tour guides will also tell visitors about the role that William Aiton (then Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew), George IV and Queen Victoria had in shaping the layout of the garden, its wildlife and rare trees and flowers, and the way it is now used by The Queen and other members of the Royal Family.

Tour will end with an opportunity to take pictures by Buckingham Palace overlooking the lake.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
