Buckingham Palace

The State Rooms

Buckingham Palace is recognised around the world as the home and official residence of the King, the focus of national and royal celebrations, as well as the backdrop to the regular Changing the Guard ceremony.

Explore the magnificent State Rooms which are open to visitors for a limited time each summer. Dates for 2024 are Wednesday 11 July 2024 - Sunday 29 September.

The State Rooms are the public rooms in the Palace where The King and members of the Royal Family receive and entertain their guests on State, ceremonial and official occasions. There are 19 State Rooms, which mainly reflect the taste of George IV, who commissioned the architect John Nash to transform Buckingham House into a grand palace in 1825. The State Rooms are furnished with many of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Van Dyck and Canaletto, sculpture by Canova, Sèvres porcelain, and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world.

Many of the State Rooms have particular uses today. The Throne Room is used by The King for court ceremonies and official entertaining, and was the setting for the wedding photos of Prince and Princess of Wales. The White Drawing Room, perhaps the grandest of all the State Rooms, serves as a royal reception room for The King and members of the Royal Family to gather before official occasions.

The State Rooms are fully accessible and they welcome visitors with different access requirements. If you require Special Access tickets they must be pre-booked by Bakers Dolphin at the time of your booking. Wheelchair access and step-free access are available via a separate entrance at the front of the Palace.
