However, it is open today for all to enjoy its sumptuous interior and its expansive gardens, lake house, and maze. The palace entry ticket worth £28.50 per person is included in your ticket price. These tours are only offered as private group tours max 2-6 persons. 

Upon arrival at the palace, your guided tour of the palace will last approximately 90 minutes.

Our guide, Peter, was very informative about the Palace and its history and manged the tour in a very professional manner. In particular, the transport and ticketing arrangements were well organised. He has a very sociable manner and readily responded to questions relating to the Palace and to other aspects of Oxford and its history.
