The State Rooms are used by The Queen and members of the Royal Family for ceremonial occasions and official entertaining. Each room is furnished with many of the treasures from the Royal Collection, including paintings by Rembrandt and Rubens and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world. 

In 2022 a special Platinum Jubilee display featuring the first official portraits of the young Queen and items of personal jewellery, including the Diamond Diadem, is also included in your ticket.


Bach to Baby Concert

By now you will be ready to sit and let Bach to Baby serenade you with an enchanting harp concert. From the vibrant English Country Garden to the stillness of Stromness, from exhilarating rhythms of the Sailor’s Hornpipe to the ancient rhymes of Greensleeves. So don your crowns and wave your reds, whites and blues, and join us to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in style, with an enchanting harp concert in the Family Pavilion, overlooking the Buckingham Palace Garden.

Bach to Baby is the critically acclaimed concert series for babies, toddlers and their carers. Tots dance, roam about and revel in the wonder of live music, while you take a moment out of your busy day to hear top notch performances by outstanding musicians with your young babes in tow.

Before booking your tickets, please take a moment to read the following advice to make the most of your visit.


Useful information

The time you choose when booking your ticket will be your entry to the Palace. You will have time to explore the Palace using the Family Multimedia guide, see the special display celebrating The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, visit the Garden Café and play in the Family Pavilion overlooking the Buckingham Palace garden.

If you choose entry at 11:30 your concert will begin in the Family Pavilion at 13:45. If you choose entry at 13:00 your concert will begin in the Family Pavilion at 15:15.

If you are attending the 13:45 concert, please be aware that Changing the Guard will occur at the front of the Palace from 10:45, which may cause slight delays to gaining entrance to the State Rooms tour. We would advise allowing extra time in your journey to accommodate for this.


Buggies and Prams

Unfortunately we are not able to have buggies, prams or large bags inside the State Rooms or the Platinum Jubilee display. You may want to bring a sling or carrier for your baby during your visit, with a small bag of emergency changing items. These larger items will be stored during your time inside the Palace, but will be reunited with you at the Family Pavilion for the concert, and you are welcome to bring food and snacks to enjoy during the concert.

Adults must be accompanied by a child in their group in order to attend this event. Please note that all children must be accompanied at all times during your visit.
