Buckingham Palace Tickets - Summer OpeningIn 2015, for the first time ever, visitors to the Summer Opening will enter the State Rooms through the grand entrance used by heads of state and prime ministers. A ticket to the Summer Opening at Buckingham Palace also includes entry to 'A Royal Welcome', a display which reveals the work behind an official visit to the Queen's principal royal residence. Every summer inquisitive visitors get the chance to look around and admire the interiors of the palace. Visitors for tour are permitted access to the nineteen State Rooms which are still used by the Royal Family to receive and entertain guests on state and ceremonial occasions. Decorated in lavish fashion, they include paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens and Canaletto, Sevres porcelain and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world. There are also some exquisite royal gifts, including Faberge Eggs, on display. This is a fascinating opportunity to admire the taste - often wonderful, sometimes comically bad - of Britain's monarchy.
