What to see at Buckingham Palace.
There are plenty of exciting things to see and do at Buckingham Palace.
The Palace has an incredible 19 state rooms which are used to entertain visitors with lavish Banquets, speeches and famously the Pipers. The State rooms are beautifully furnished with treasures from the Royal Collection including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Poussin as well classic furniture from England and France.
During the Queens annual visit to Balmoral in Scotland from August to September the State Rooms are opened to visitors and are laid out as they are during state visits.
Known as the “walled oasis in the middle of London” Buckingham Palace’s garden is as stunning as the building with over 350 different species of wild flowers. The finale of a visit is a walk along the south side of the garden with views over the famous lake.
