4 Things to Do While in Balmoral Castle

Queen Elizabeth II calls Balmoral Castle their home every summer, staying here from July until September of each year. The Royal Deeside estate was purchased by Prince Albert in 1852. He fell in love with the property because it reminded him of his native land, Thuringia, Germany. He and Queen Victoria first leased the property. They eventually bought it outright for £32,000. The house was then enlarged to fit the growing family. After Queen Victoria died in 1901, the estate was inherited by his eldest son King Edward VII who also passed it on to King George V. King Edward VIII retained ownership of Balmoral (as well as Sandringham) after his abdication in 1936 until a financial settlement was struck that transferred ownership to his brother and successor, King George VI.  Today, this favorite royal residence is enjoyed and well-loved by thousands of guests who come to relish the estate’s panoramic landscape, the tranquil surroundings, and the opportunity to live like a royal, even for just a few days.
