Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham PalaceEvery summer inquisitive visitors get the chance to look around Buckingham Palace and admire the grand State Rooms used by heads of state at the Summer Opening. This year, a ticket includes access to 'Royal Gifts', a display of more than 250 objects which tell the story of The Queen's reign through official gifts presented to her over the past 65 years. Visitors can also see the nineteen State Rooms which are still used by the Royal Family to receive and entertain guests on state and ceremonial occasions. Decorated in lavish fashion, they include paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Canaletto, Sevres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world. There are also some exquisite royal gifts, including Faberge Eggs, on display. This is a fascinating opportunity to admire the taste - often wonderful, sometimes comically bad - of Britain's monarchy.Audio GuidesAudio tours are included in the admission price and are available in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese and Russian

 

About Buckingham Palace

England's most famous royal palace, and the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace opens the doors of its State Rooms to the public every summer. Originally acquired by King George III for his wife Queen Charlotte, Buckingham House was increasingly known as the 'Queen's House' and 14 of George III's children were born there.
