What: Buckingham Palace Summer Opening
When: Open until 30th September 2018
We do love our Queen Lizzy and we value our British heritage dearly. We are proud to say we’ve flourished as a business in the heart of London, so we think it’s important to celebrate and enjoy the city’s landmarks. Every summer the palace opens its doors for the public to explore, with over 775 rooms but only (yes, only) 19 open you can experience the life of royalty. The tour lets you snoop around the rooms where the Queen hosts her receptions and takes you on an exhibition of the gifts she has received in her 65-year reign. Including a sperm whale’s tooth necklace from Fiji to a dinosaur bone – we reckon Lizzy would love a Smith & Sinclair Mixed Cocktail selection, don’t you think?
