25-year-old Adam, the visitor service administrator of the Royal Collection, said of the opening of the garden: “This is a discount we have never offered before.
“Allowing people to enter the garden for a picnic and explore their leisure time is an exciting prospect.
“We are a bit like an oasis in central London, so not many people realize it is here or how big it is. This is the largest private garden in London, so I think we have a lot of secrets to tell people.”
When he talked about the Queen’s residence, he received a seasonal bouquet made from garden flowers every week: “She absolutely loves to be part of what’s happening.”
Sally Goodsir, Curator of Decorative Arts at the Royal Collection, said: “It is a pity that due to the current situation, we cannot open the State Hall as usual this year, so it is great to be able to open the garden instead.”
She explained how this garden was immersed in history. Queen Charlotte, the spouse of George III, once had a zoo on site, including a zebra.
At the same time, Victoria and Albert designed a more natural garden. The latter nearly drowned while skating on the lake in 1841, but was rescued by his wife.
As part of the general visit, daily conversations between the tourist service administrator and the family trail are included.
On Mondays in July and August, starting from July 19, and as part of the two family festivals on August 26 and 30, arts and crafts activities will be offered to families with children.
The current landscape of the historic 39-acre garden dates back to the 1820s, when George IV turned Buckingham Palace into a palace.
Although located in the city, the garden contains rare native plants that are rare in London, more than 1,000 trees, 320 different wild flowers and grasses, and the National Mulberry Tree Collection.
Its rose garden has 25 rose beds, each of which is planted with 60 rose bushes of different varieties, and no two adjacent rose beds have similar colors.
Since 2008, the island in the lake has been home to five beehives, producing approximately 160 pots of honey each year for use by the Royal Kitchen.
Some botanicals in the garden including lemon verbena, hawthorn berries, bay leaf and mulberry leaf are used to make Buckingham Palace gin and sold by RCT.
Due to the pandemic, the traditional summer opening events of the State Affairs Hall and themed exhibitions of the Forbidden City usually receive thousands of people, but they have been cancelled for the second consecutive year.
Traditionally, the Queen would also hold three garden parties in the palace every year, receiving 8,000 guests at the same time, but this year and the last time it was not possible.
