Buckingham Palace, London

Queen Elizabeth II - one of our favourite royals at sea - is now officially Britain’s longest-reigning monarch and her London residence, Buckingham Palace, is well worth a visit.

Although much of the palace remains private 19 of its State Rooms are open to the public every summer. The stunning rooms are filled with famous masterpieces from the Royal Collection and their elaborate interiors are breathtaking. To really make the most of the experience book an exclusive guided tour, which finishes with a glass of Champagne served in the Bow Room.

The Royal Palace of Stockholm

The official residence of the King of Sweden, the Royal Palace of Stockholm, is one of the largest in Europe. With more than 600 rooms across seven floors the baroque style palace certainly has plenty to see. Open to visitors year round it is normally possible to tour the Royal Apartments and the Treasury. The palace is also home to five museums and it is worth timing your visit to coincide with the changing of the guard.

*How to visit on a superyacht: *Sweden’s capital is spread across 14 islands making it ideal to explore by boat. A trip to the Royal Palace can be included as part of six days exploring Sweden’s East coast by superyacht. Stockholm is also home to some of the world’s best restaurants which you can enjoy during your trip.

Grand Palace Bangkok

Situated on an artificial island, the Grand Palace in Bangkok is the city’s most famous landmark. It is home of the King, his court and also the entire administrative seat of government. A visit is recommended early in the morning before it gets too hot and both men and women need to ensure that legs and arms are covered.

How to visit on a superyacht: Thailand is currently trying to encourage more superyachts to visit the country. Last month it officially opened its waters to foreign flagged superyacht charters. However, most of the infrastructure development is focused in Phuket where a £95 million investment in Royal Phuket Marina was announced in June.
