Buckingham Palace tour: summer opening 2019

Explore the lavish interiors of the Queen’s official London residence, and one of the world’s few remaining working royal palaces, at Buckingham Palace this summer.

Visit the official London residence of the Queen, as Buckingham Palace opens its doors to the public every summer.

In 2019, Buckingham Palace is open to visitors From 22 July 2019 to 29 September.

Explore the lavishly furnished State Rooms of one of the world’s few remaining working royal palaces, and look out for some of the Royal Collection‘s greatest treasures on display.

Every year, Buckingham Palace’s summer opening features special exhibitions. The year 2019 marks 200 years since Queen Victoria’s birth so a special exhibition tells the story of how the young queen transformed Buckingham Palace from a private house into a working royal residence. It’s also the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, so another special exhibition in the palace brings together more than 200 of the Renaissance master’s greatest drawings in the Royal Collection, forming the largest exhibition of Leonardo’s work in more than 65 years.
