Attraction Information

Have a royal day out at Buckingham Palace!

The palace is the official London residence of Her Majesty The Queen and serves as both home and office. Today the State Rooms are used extensively by the royal family to receive and entertain guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions. Explore these nineteen magnificent state rooms during the summer when they open to the public and discover treasures from The Royal Collection as well as some of the finest French and English furniture in the world.

Enjoy exhibitions from The Royal Collection in The Queen’s Gallery, opened by The Queen herself in 2002. In summer 2017 the gallery will host Canaletto and the Art of Venice, a spectacular collection of 18th century Venetian art.

See one of the finest working stables in existence at The Royal Mews. In the stables, which are responsible for all road travel arrangements of The Queen and Royal Family, you will find historical coaches including the Diamond Jubilee State Coach and the Gold State Coach, which has been used at every coronation since that of George IV in 1821.

Witness the colourful display of the Changing of the Guard then discover more about the Palace and explore the garden with a complementary activity trail and family audio guide.
