Buckingham Palace Tickets Now on Sale

The Royal State Rooms at Buckingham Palace are only open for eight weeks during the summer while the Queen is not in residence. The Royal State Rooms are now open to visitors until the 27th of September 2015. Tickets can be purchased from £20.50 per person and booking in advance is recommended, as this is one of London's top tourist destinations. Discounted tickets are available for children (£11.80) and seniors (£18.80).

The Royal State Rooms are frequently used by the Queen to receive guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions. The nineteen Royal State Rooms at Buckingham Palace were developed by George IV and the architect John Nash when the former Buckingham House was transformed into the Buckingham Palace we know today. The Palace officially became a Royal Residence when Queen Victoria started her reign of the British empire in 1837.

The State Rooms at Buckingham Palace feature a large collection of artworks by famous painters and sculptors, such as Van Dyck and Canova. Buckingham Palace contains one of Europe's largest collections of fine furniture and porcelain from various periods.

You will also get to see the Throne Room, where the Queen receives loyal addresses on special occasions like the Jubilee. At the end of your visit, you can relax in the Garden Café and enjoy some of London's finest cakes and teas while looking out at the Buckingham Palace Gardens.

As the State Rooms are only open for a limited period of time, we would highly encourage you to book your tickets sooner rather than later. Booking your tickets in advance will also help you avoid disappointment on particularly busy days, where queues can occur.
