Our guide to Buckingham Palace Entrance Tickets

Buckingham Palace, a fully working palace housing not only The Queen but serving as the administrative headquarters of the Royal Household, opens to the public again this summer.

There are 19 exquisitely furnished State Rooms to explore boasting fine examples of French and English antique furniture and displaying some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including works by Rubens, Canaletto and Rembrandt, sculpture by Canova and porcelain by Sèvres.

You will also get to visit the stunning gardens. Often called the ‘walled oasis in the middle of London’, the gardens of Buckingham Palace are a true sight to behold and are home to 30 different species of bird and over 350 different wild flowers.

Your ticket also includes access to Royal Animals, a special exhibition telling the story of how the likes of swans and corgis have become synonymous with the Royal family.

The Royal family’s association with animals doesn’t stop at the domestic however, and the exhibition features exotic animals including the giraffe gifted to King George IV in 1827 by the Viceroy of Egypt, and the horses used for parades and public events.

An avid animal lover (and no longer a user of real fur), the Queen’s and indeed the entire Royal family’s love of animals is documented in this fascinating exhibit, from George III to today.

Visitors finish their tour with a walk along the south side of the garden, taking in views of the famous lake and the west front of the palace.
