You might already have heard it. On Tuesday, 2 April 2024, Balmoral Castle in Scotland, United Kingdom, announced that the grounds, gardens and exhibitions will be open on a daily basis from 4 May to 22 August 2024. But there was a special announcement this year. For the first time since the castle was completed in 1855, the British King, Charles III, has given permission for private tours with guides through the castle itself.

Not surprising, the exclusive tours, available from 1 July to 4 August 2024, UNFORTUNATELY were sold out within hours. There were only four tours a day for 10 people per tour available. The lucky few will be able to see several of the beautiful rooms within the Castle that are used nowadays by the King and Queen and other members of the family, and travel through time from the purchase of the castle by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, through to present day. The castle interior tours costed £100, including afternoon tea even £150.

For the people, that weren’t lucky this year, one hopes that there will be a second chance in the years to come. Luckily you can still visit Balmoral, although you won’t get any further than the ballroom, which is usually open to visitors.
