The Summer Opening of the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace

Release date: Tuesday, 12 May 2020

The safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff are our priority. Because of the operational challenges of social distancing, unfortunately we have had to take the decision not to open the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace to the public this summer, and Frogmore House and Clarence House will not open in August 2020. Those who have booked tickets will be refunded.

We are currently unable to confirm a date on which the other Palaces, the Royal Mews, the Galleries and shops will reopen, but will continue to monitor Government advice.

In the meantime, the Royal Collection and Palaces can be enjoyed and explored digitally on the Discover section of the website.
