Visit Buckingham Palace, one of the world's few remaining working royal palaces, in London this summer.

Explore the lavishly furnished State Rooms, containing some of the greatest treasures from the Royal Collection. Highlights include:

  • Paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, Poussin, Canaletto and Claude
  • Sculpture by Canova and Chantrey
  • Exquisite examples of Sèvres porcelain
  • Some of the finest English and French furniture in the world

Every year, Buckingham Palace's summer opening features a special exhibition. In 2014, the exhibition marked the arrival of Prince George with a focus on the childhoods of royal family members through their toys, outfits and previously unseen images.

Make sure to keep an eye out for special items on display. Here's our top 10 things to see at Buckingham Palace.
