Like the palaces, the English tours here are limited, I went at 2pm, but I have no idea if they keep the same schedule each day. Six days a week you can only enter with a tour and on Saturday it's open to the public. The tour was fascinating. Jongmyo is a shrine for deceased kings of the last dynasty of Korea. Everything is very symbolic. There were only six people in my tour group and we were the only group in the shrine, so it was a remarkable experience. I wouldn't recommend this for kids, instead I think this is a perfect tour for adult history buffs.
