The STATE ROOMS at BUCKINGHAM PALACE will be open to the public starting 29 July until 29 September while the Queen is in Scotland. For visitors in London, this is one of the most interesting events of the summer season. After the State rooms, visitors will enjoy a special exhibit about the Queen’s Royal Tours. After you have gone through the palace, visit the the QUEEN’S GALLERY around the side of the palace where a most amazing VICTORIA AND ALBERT EXHIBITION is taking place. This year’s SUMMER OPENING will be one of the most interesting ever held at the Palace. Don’t miss it.
Tickets can be purchased in a special KIOSK near GREEN PARK. Go in the morning to get your tickets. The tickets will be stamped with the time your tour begins at the Palace. Go to the south side of the Palace, THE AMBASSADORS ENTRANCE, at the time indicated on the ticket. YOU ARE IN FOR A REAL TREAT.
I suggest you buy the GUIDE BOOK TO BUCKINGHAM PALACE the day before your tour so you will be prepared for the visit. Even better, go on the INTERNET and look up the history of Buckingham Palace. On this blog, there is also a good deal of history about the old Palace.
I go every year, and I love it every time. The Queen takes a great interest in the SUMMER OPENING. Many of the items in the exhibit, especially the jewelry, are personally owned by the Queen.
Enjoy your day at the Palace.
