A while back, many of us purchased tickets to visit Buckingham Palace on Friday, September 2. While I'm sure we all purchased the same tickets, ours include the following:

Timed Admission to the Queen's Gallery at 10:00 am
Admission to the State Rooms - last entry at 3:45
Admission to the Royal Mews - last entry at 4:15

How to get there......
It looks like we can take the Tube from the Holburn station near the hotel to Green Park. Then you walk through Green Park next to Buckingham Palace to the Queen's Gallery.

So who's joining us? I'll start the list.....

Christy and Mike
John and Kevin
Frank and Cathy
Cynthia and Michael
Karen and Kaye
Laurie and Brian
Tobi

Cathy and I have tickets for BP tour at that date and time, I just have to remember where I put them.....

Like the idea of taking the Tube, but we have not purchase passes yet for the Tube, I will look into that.

I would suggest getting an oyster card (5 refundable deposit if you hand the card back in) as you pay 1.90 per journey by tube rather than 4.00 for the cash fare. They also cap each days total spend, it's 6.60 if you don't travel between 6.30 - 9.30am and 4 - 7pm Monday to Friday and 8.00 if you do travel between those times :thumbsup2

You can get these at most tube stations I think.

List has been updated! :thumbsup2

I'm thinking meet in the lobby of the hotel about 9:00 and leave shortly there after. It's about a 10 minute ride on the Tube, plus a 10-15 minute walk through the park. Just a thought, I'm open to any suggestions!

Thanks for the info!

I checked out the site and although it is too late to get an Oyster sent to us before we leave, I will pick ours up when we arrive the day before the Palace tour.

Think they'll notice if I steal a piece of Will and Kate's cake?
