There are many people who question the cost of the Royal family to the country yet do not see the value they bring so they should just look at the queues for the summer opening of the State Rooms at the Palace. You get timed tickets which should stagger the hoards but if you get a slow group ahead of you then be prepared to jostle a bit with many others who have made the trip.
The rooms are, as you would expect, full of fantastic artifacts and objects which are a delight. the State Dining room is a favourite of mine due to the fact that the table, although so long, looks far too short in height but it is an optical illusion due to the height of the ceiling I guess.
The route takes you through the Art gallery - wow such special paintings, and then out into the garden before taking you through some purpose built shops where you can by virtually anything you can think of with a royal emblem on it.
Great experience though I would not think you would want to do it too often as I suspect the art changes that often.
