In August there will be a chance to go inside Clarence House, the official residence of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.

Clarence House is just under 200 years old and was built for the future King William IV while he was the Duke of Clarence, hence it’s name.

Although the original design was by John Nash, modifications after WW2 means that little of the original design now remains, but it is still one of London’s grander buildings.

The tours cover the five ground-floor rooms where The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall undertake official engagements and receive guests from around the world.

The arrangement of the rooms and the grouping of their contents remain much as they were in the time of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, who lived in the building for 50 years.

The house will be open throughout August, and entry costs £10.30 for a guided tour – book here.

There are also evening guided tours, at £35 per person.
