Have a nose around ceremonial rooms, admire golden thrones, gaze at the famous Nash ceilings and marvel at paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Vermeer, then stroll around the stunning garden. This year’s special exhibition focuses on Russian jeweller Carl Fabergé; The Duchess of Cambridge’s Sarah Burton-designed wedding dress is also on display alongside a replica of the happy couple’s wedding cake.
