Buckingham Palace Ticket

  • 2 hours 30 minutes

Buckingham Palace is one of London's most iconic landmarks, and one of the jewels of the British monarchy. This ticket allows you to tour the majestic halls and rooms, the fascinating mews, and the beautiful gardens.

What to expect

Buckingham Palace only opens to the public on specific occasions and this summer is one of them. With your fast track ticket, you can explore the elegant hallways and rooms inside London's most famous building, and the beautiful gardens that surround it.

When making the reservation, there are two options to choose from - the State Rooms and Gardens ticket or the State Rooms and Royal Mews ticket.

No matter what type of ticket you choose, you will enjoy a self-guided tour accompanied by English language audio commentary on the fascinating history and facts about one of the most famous palaces in the world.

Ticket for the State Rooms and Gardens

This ticket will give you access to the official residence of Queen Elizabeth II. The monarch spends her summer holidays in Scotland, which is when Buckingham Palace opens its doors to the general public. You can explore its elegant rooms and halls and admire the English and French style period furniture and decoration.

This ticket gives you access to the State Rooms. These 19 elegant halls are used by both the Queen and her family for official receptions and formal events. Together they form an art gallery in their own right, with masterpieces by Van DyckRembrandt, Rubens, and Canaletto, to name just a few.

The ticket also includes an audio-guided tour of the gardens of Buckingham Palace. This beautiful green space is home to more than 30 different species of birds and more than 350 different types of wildflower. This route concludes with a delightful stroll around the southern area of the gardens, where you will enjoy views of the famous royal lake which faces the western side of the palace.
