This nicely restored, rambling palace was Sheikh Zayed’s residence from 1937 until 1966. The simple yet elegant cinnamon-coloured compound is divided into private, guest and official quarters by courtyards and landscaped with cacti, magnolia trees and palms. You can step inside the majlis (meeting room) where Zayed received visitors, roam around the huge kitchen, see the canopied matrimonial bed and snap a photo of the Land Rover he used to visit the desert Bedu.
