The newly reserviced East Wing of Buckingham Palace will be open for public tours for the first time this summer.

Special guided tours will be available for visitors in July and August. In the East Wing, you can find the famous central balcony, where many public appearances have taken place during historic moments.

Small groups will be able to visit the Principal Floor, which has been furnished with highlights from the Royal Collection. This wing was first occupied by Queen Victoria and her family and is still used today for official events. The tour will go through rooms where paintings by Thomas Gainsborough, Sir Thomas Lawrence, and Franz Xaver Winterhalter can be seen.

The tour must be booked in addition to the standard admission ticket.

The Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace is from 11 July to 29 September 2024. The Palace will be open seven days a week during July and August and five days a week during September. The East Wing Highlights Tours will go on sale on 9 April.

The combined ticket price is £75 for Adults. Plan your visit here.
