Children participating in a schools' gallery workshop at The Queen's Gallery, Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is the London home of Queen Elizabeth II and the headquarters of the monarchy. A number of opportunities are available for school groups to enjoy a visit to Buckingham Palace’s three inspiring sites.

A visit to the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace is a unique experience, combining history, an art collection and a working palace.

The Royal Mews is one of the finest working stables in existence and provides a unique opportunity to learn about the horses and carriages that play an important part in The Queen’s official and ceremonial duties.

The Queen’s Gallery is a permanent art gallery on the south side of Buckingham Palace. It shows changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection in an intimate and welcoming gallery setting.
