Buckingham Palace Tour - State Rooms

Take a look around the royal residence itself on this self-guided Buckingham Palace tour, which gives you exclusive access to the offices and London residence of Her Majesty The Queen!

While The Queen makes her annual summer visit to Scotland, the magnificent Buckingham Palace State Rooms are opened up for visitors to venture behind the scenes and get a glimpse into the lives of the Royals.

The State Rooms are the heart of the Palace, and are used by the Royal Family to receive and entertain guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions

These spectacular rooms are opulently furnished with some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection. You’ll see paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Poussin and Canaletto, sculpture by Canova, exquisite Sèvres porcelain and some of the world’s finest English and French furniture.

After your visit to the State Rooms, the Palace’s lovely Garden Café is the perfect place to enjoy refreshments over views of the wonderful gardens.

The State Rooms are only open to visitors between 22 July to 27 September 2019, so book your Buckingham Palace tickets now!

Buckingham Palace Tour - State Rooms is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super! Easy to order tickets online and then very well organised entry at The Palace. Given an easy to use tablet with headphones which gave interesting details about each of the rooms and the information was available in several languages and adult or child friendly format. I bought tickets as a treat for my daughter, 7 year old granddaughter and 4 year old grandson. We all loved our tour of Buckingham Palace and the two children also thought travelling on the underground and a London was great fun!! An excellent day out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A once in a lifetime experience! Magical! That word sums up the incredible tour of Buckingham Palace. The entire experience from purchasing tickets, security and walking thru the magnificent rooms was flawless. The audio component was excellent and enhanced the tour greatly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good experience The downside to the tour is the entrance, you queue for you tickets ok, no one asked for any ID which is alarming, then when time queued for the security check this is the part that was uncomfortable when we were herded like cattle being asked to squash up, the security is a farce, ok they have airport scanners for bags and people but they seem a bit lax especially with the amount of people they are rushing through, people were carrying large bags, backpacks round on top of noone having to show any photo ID? After that though the tour was good you get your own interactive tablet guide and headphones and can walk round at your own pace, plenty to see and the guide has family mode as well, very informative and interesting. Cafe at the end on the part where the Queen's garden parties are held, medium price, cream scone nearly £6 tea and coffee £3+ bit nice, gift shop for fanatics just royal memrobilia, get to see a little bit of garden on way out. Overall a good place to visit, would not be interested in repeating though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real eye opener We went expecting to see the State Rooms and these were very good but the lasting impression will be of the amazing selection of gifts given to the Royals by foreign governments. These were too varied, eclectic, and exquisite to adequately describe. They simply have to be seen to be believed.
