Great day out with family; four adults, three children ages 7-8 and a baby. We had pre-booked tickets online but still waited in a queue for an hour and a half. Staff said this is normal! How can Buckingham palace get the tickets and queues...More

An excellent afternoon on Sunday, 12th, August, although about 35 minutes to get through security. Very necessary though. Once inside a gentle pace round with a very good audio guide.

Buy tickets in advance - you will still wait in line but not nearly as long. Once in, there's lots to see not the grounds and in a couple of the buildings. Our audio headsets did not work well, so we took a guided tour,...More

Well worth a visit, but pre book as we did, queues to pay on the day very long. Even though it was very busy you could get around quite easily

Frankly, and sadly, I don't think this is a place for children under, say, 12. Its too big and the contents won't mean much to children unless they are exceptional history buffs.

The dolls house is closed at the moment - I think for a few months for restoration in that area. Not sure on the New Year hours but the official website should be able to provide more info.
