Fans of the royal family, this is the ultimate travel destination for you. Buckingham Palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty the Queen. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today. When the palace is not being used in its official capacity, visitors can enjoy the State Rooms, which form the heart of the working palace - nineteen rooms, lavishly furnished with the finest treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Poussin, and Canaletto and some of the finest English and French furniture. To mark the 70th birthday of The Prince of Wales this 2018, the Summer Opening of Buckingham Palace will include a special display of over 100 works of art personally selected by His Royal Highness. Visitors end their tour with a walk along the south side of the palace garden, which showcases splendid views of the west front of the Palace and the famous lake.
