Stroll the Hall of Mirrors and admire the opulent suites and royal quarters. Head into the gardens to continue your visit. On summer Saturdays, Sundays, and bank holidays (April to October) your ticket includes the Fountain Show.

When you’re done exploring the palace and grounds, return your audio guide and exit the palace grounds to conclude your visit.
