Guide book says take bus from metro station, but bus to Gatchina loads in 'front' of Soviet House (a block north), not outside the Moskovskaya metro itself (those are returning). When you get to Gatchina town there are several stops before palace. Bus will take left, then a right at an obelisk. Palace on right. To get return bus go back down to the obelisk where there is a covered stop. Look for your number returning. At palace entrance is at the left corner of courtyard. Your ticket will admit you to gardens and maybe other sites there also. You can see restored and damaged parts of palace.
