Two famous London Palaces- not to be missed
If you’re in London in August or September don’t miss the chance to see the inside of these famous palaces.
Buckingham Palace, 21 July – 01 October 2017. Annual public opening of State Rooms and Gardens at Buckingham Palace, The Queen’s official residence in London. If you are in London at this time, a chance to see these magnificent rooms and the palace gardens is not to be missed. Find out how people are welcomed to Buckingham Palace and what goes on behind-the-scenes to create the magic and magnificence of a State Visit – from the dresses designed, to the ingredients and porcelain chosen for a State Banquet.
There are 3 options available:
1. The State Rooms, Buckingham Palace. This includes the exhibition Royal Gifts, which tells the story of The Queen’s reign through a wide-ranging display of official gifts presented during the past 65 years.
2. The State Rooms and Garden Highlights Tour (really recommended) and
3. Royal Day Out. This ticket gives admission to The State Rooms, Buckingham Palace, The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace and the Royal Mews, but no tour of the garden.

Palace of Westminster, August/September 2017 (and on most Saturdays throughout the year). Public tours of The Houses of Parliament are available for overseas visitors, who will be able to see the historic building, including the Chambers of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Find out more here.
And if you’re in London in September you’ll be here during Totally Thames, an annual month long season of surprising, diverse and accessible arts and culture with activity taking place on, beneath and along the River Thames.
Where To Stay?
Coach House Rentals has the solution. Unlike other vacation rentals services such as Airbnb, HomeAway etc. where you’re on your own, often at the mercy of the non-resident owner, Coach House Rentals provides a full concierge service from the moment you arrive at the airport to the moment you depart.
Our “service with a difference” starts with the booking process: an excellent web site, real people to exchange emails with and talk to if necessary to help you decide the best rental for you, and a safe and secure booking system – no danger of correspondence being intercepted and money being diverted to a fraudster’s account.
We will arrange a car to meet you at the airport and will be at your rental when you arrive to greet you, hand over the keys, explain how everything works and answer any questions.
And during your stay we provide a 24/7 help line to call if you have any problems or have any questions about what to do and how to do it.
We’ve been in business since 2001 and, although we’re a small company, we have a very high reputation with over 35 % of our bookings being repeat or recommended by friends.
And we do still have some avaiability for both larger and smaller parties in August and September!
