Visit one of the most famous Royal Palaces in the world – Buckingham Palace, home to Her Majesty The Queen.
Buckingham Palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty The Queen, as well as the administrative headquarters of the Royal Household. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today. Today the State Rooms are used extensively by The Queen and Members of the Royal Family to receive and entertain their guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions.
During August and September when The Queen makes her annual visit to Scotland, the Palace’s nineteen state rooms are open to visitors.
The State Rooms form the heart of the working palace and are lavishly furnished with some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection – paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Poussin and Canaletto; sculpture by Canova; exquisite examples of Sevres porcelain; and some of the finest English and French furniture.
The Garden, Described as a ‘walled oasis in the middle of London’, is home to thirty different species of bird and more than 350 different wild flowers, some extremely rare.
Visitors end their tour with a walk along the south side of the garden, with splendid views of the west front of the Palace and the famous lake.
