State Rooms and Gardens Highlights Tour

 

Opening Saturday 5 August 2017 to Sunday 24 September 2017

 

Buckingham Palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty The Queen. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today.

 

Today the State Rooms are used extensively by The Queen and Members of the Royal Family to receive and entertain their guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions. During August and September when The Queen makes her annual visit to Scotland, the Palace's nineteen state rooms are open to visitors. The State Rooms form the heart of the working palace and are lavishly furnished with some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection - paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Poussin and Canaletto; sculpture by Canova; exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain; and some of the finest English and French furniture.

 

During a visit to Buckingham Palace, you can see the 19 magnificent State Rooms which provide the setting for ceremonial occasions and official entertaining. All rooms are furnished with many of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection.

 

Your ticket includes entry to Royal Gifts. This special exhibition at the Summer Opening of the Palace in 2017, tells the story of Her Majesty The Queen's reign through a wide-ranging display of official gifts presented to Her Majesty during the past 65 years, representing a spectacular display of craftsmanship from across the globe.

 

The Garden Highlights Tour includes the beautiful Herbaceous Border, the wisteria-clad summer house and Rose Garden, the enormous Waterloo Vase and the Palace tennis court, where King George VI and Fred Perry played in the 1930s. The 39-acre garden is today the setting for The Queen's Garden Parties. Described as 'a walled oasis in the middle of London', it boasts more than 350 types of wild flower, over 200 trees and a three-acre lake.
