The Queen's State Apartment



New visitor tour

In order to enhance conditions for visitors and preserve our heritage, major work on fire safety standards, utility network renovation and air treatment improvement will be beginning on 5 January 2016 in the four rooms of the Queen’s State Apartment. For further information about the Development Plan.

The State Apartments visitor tour is modified during the works. As they come out of the King’s Chamber, visitors are directed into the Bull’s Eye Room, the King’s Grand Couvert displaying furniture installed during the works, and the newly-restored King’s Guard Room.

This will bring them to the Queen’s Staircase from where they can continue their visit via the Mesdames’ Apartments which have been fully restored and refurnished. The public can also go through the Coronation Chamber to take a look at the Battles Gallery.
