You'll also get to see the Ballroom, where banquets are held, as well the Music Room, which hasn't been renovated since 1831!

"This is the room where guests, having assembled in the Green Drawing Room, are presented before a dinner or a banquet," the palace says. "Here too, royal babies are sometimes christened – The Queen’s three eldest children were all baptised here in water brought from the River Jordan."
