The palace is well maintained, the day we were there it was raining, We also visited Huwon Secret garden. The guide as good but the time given to enjoy the place was short. The tour is about an hour covering 5 different areas in the...More
This was the first palace in Seoul we saw due to the Secret garden tour. Tried to reserve online but it was closed; no problem buying tickets at the door though (you can’t visit the garden without a guided tour.) There’s a fair amount of...More
Nice place to roam around admire the structural and architectural history of Seoul considering this palace offers some structures being built earlier than the other palaces in the surrounding area. The Secret Garden tour provides more access to different areas and also great views. It's...More
A place that you must visit in Seoul.
If you like history, this site will satisfy you.
There are so many buildings & courtyards to view that you will be lost in your own world.
The highlight of this historical site however is the Secret...More
I love the forrest and the lake beside the palace. It's so fresh and it makes me feel peacefully. That's all of my feeling. The architect of the places are normal and there's only the walls. I dont find any culture things in this.
We visited this place with two children.
It is beautiful place and lots to see

There's so much to do and see here as inside there are also entrances to Changyeonggung Palace and the Secret Garden Tour. The architecture of this complex is so outstanding that it was inscribed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List in 1997. Also, I'd...More
We came early morning to Changdeokgung Palace to make sure we could secure tickets to the Secret Garden and booked both a tour of the palace and the gardens on arrival. The palace is huge, and our guide brough the place to life, explaining each...More
If Gwanghwamun is the unofficial living room of Seoul, Jongno is the main hallway connecting some of Seoul’s most important historic sites and neighbourhoods. Being one of Seoul’s oldest neighbourhoods, the area is rich with history and culture in its palaces, shrines, and temples. Stand in the centre of Gwanghwamun Square with Gyeongbokgung Palace and Mt. Bugak in front of you, King Sejong the Great statue
behind you, and modern office buildings encircling you—it’s one of the best ways to experience both past and present Seoul in one spot. The main street of Jongno is mostly dotted with restaurants and cafes, but explore deeper within its intricate alleys to pass decades-old restaurants, mom-and-pop shops, and pojangmachas (tents that open at night for quick bites and drinks) and life seems to run just as it did a decade or two ago. Don’t forget to stop at Gwangjang Market, Korea’s oldest traditional market, where it’s just as fun to explore as it is to eat the affordable market dishes that locals have been enjoying since the market first opened in 1905. For a break from urban life, walk along the restored Cheonggyecheon Stream that runs parallel to Jongno for a moment of natural refuge in metropolitan Seoul.

I do not know if they will be open on Sept 24 or not. You have to check their website. BUT yes, for the secret garden there is guided tour only. The tour starts in groups on specific times during the day. Their website will guide you on these timings. You cannot enter the secret gardens on your own. You must visit this attraction. A must on your tour. All the best.
We did not have a guide. We mostly read from the placards at each spot which can be general information. however, if you have history buffs a guide may be good.
You can get a guide when buying your admission tickets.
