Royal Gates at Buckingham Palace - London, England

Summer Opening — The State Rooms @ Buckingham Palace
Buckingham Palace is the official London office and residence of Her Majesty, The Queen of England.

During August and September (when The Queen makes her annual visit to Scotland), the Palace's 19 State Rooms are open to visitors — we highly recommend this FUN and educational tour.

Buckingham Palace Tours
Several Buckingham Palace Tours are offered to the public:

  • The State Rooms Tour
    (Music Room, Ballroom,
    Throne Room)
  • The Queen's Gallery
  • The Royal Mews
  • Combination Tours

Buckingham Palace Tours/Tickets

The State Rooms
The State Rooms are lavishly furnished with some of the finest treasures from the Royal Collection, including many priceless works of art by Rembrandt, Rubens, Poussin and Canaletto; porcelains, sculptures, and some of the world's finest English and French furniture.

Visit the Music Room, the Ballroom — and The Throne Room. The Throne Room was the highlight of our tour. It's where the Queen awards knighthoods — the official sword is on display in a clear glass case. British medals and awards, including OBE's, MBE's, CBE's and more are also displayed.

Buckingham Palace Garden
The Palace's garden is home to over 30 species of birds and more than 350 different wild flowers, some of which are extremely rare. Visitors end their tour with a walk along the south side of the garden. It offers scenic views of the west front of the Palace and its famous lake (above).
