Buckingham Palace is preparing to open its stunning garden to the public for picnics and self-guided tours for the first time ever this week.

The garden will open for the first time on Friday and the demand for tickets has been so high that additional places have been made available on dates throughout July until September. 

Members of the public, who must pre-book, will be able to picnic on the sweeping lawns and can pre-arrange to join guided tours around the south west of the garden - including the Rose Garden, summer house and wildflower meadow.

The public area of the garden encompasses the 156-metre Herbaceous Border, the Horse Chestnut Avenue, plane trees planted by and named after Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and views of the island and its beehives across the 3.5-acre lake.
