Mrs Greville’s Apartment and Royal Suite Tours

This year we have 2 separate tours to visit areas in the house that are not normally open to visitors. However, please note - these tours are SUBJECT TO VOLUNTEER AVAILABILITY.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

It is a wonderful chance for visitors to look behind the scenes into two areas of the first floor of the house: Mrs Greville’s Apartment, Every day – 11.30 and 15.00, and on Weekdays only 13.00 and 15.00 - there are 10 spaces on each tour. Royal Guests’ Suites – Weekdays only 12.30 and 14.30 - there are 8 spaces on each tour. These short tours will last about 20 mins each, taking visitors through either Mrs Greville’s Bedroom, peeking into her Ritz bathroom and finishing in the boudoir, with its magnificent views across the Valley and down Bagden Drive. Or into the King’s Suite and the other guest suite corridors learning about Mrs Greville’s royal connections and a glimpse into the stores. These tours will be great for visitors wanting to see behind the scenes and learn a little more about Mrs Greville and her life.
