Buckingham Palace

Her Majesty The Queen’s London house and office are both located at Buckingham Palace. It is one of the world’s few surviving functional royal palaces.

Visitors can see the 19 State Rooms, which form the core of the Palace, during the summer and select periods from November to December and Easter.

The Royal Collection’s greatest masterpieces, such as paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, and Canaletto, are shown in these majestic halls.

The Royal Mews and The Queen’s Gallery are both located on the Buckingham Palace grounds, however they have distinct public gates and can be seen separately or as part of a combination ticket.

Both locations are open throughout the year, even when the palace is closed.

Along with the summer opening of Buckingham Palace, this stunning show features an unprecedented display of The Queen’s personal jewels.

Try to time your visit to catch Changing the Guard, a popular free ceremony that begins at 10.45 a.m. and lasts around 45 minutes, with the actual handover taking place at 11 a.m. outside Buckingham Palace on certain days.

Arrive early to get an excellent viewing spot.
