Guided tour

A guide shows visitors around the gardens of Clarence House

Visitors to Clarence House are taken on a 1 hour guided tour of the five ground-floor rooms – The Lancaster Room, The Morning Room, The Library, The Dining Room and The Garden Room – where The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall undertake official engagements and receive guests from around the world.

The arrangement of the rooms and the grouping of their contents remain much as they were in the time of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, with much of Her Majesty's collection of works of art and furniture in their former positions. Clarence House displays much of Queen Elizabeth's famous art collection, including outstanding 20th-century paintings such as important works by John Piper, Graham Sutherland, WS Sickert and Augustus John. Superb examples of English porcelain and silver, particularly pieces relating to the Bowes-Lyon family, are also on display.
