In order to enhance conditions for visitors and preserve our heritage, major works on fire safety standards, utility network renovation and air treatment improvement are in progress in the four rooms of the Queen’s State Apartment.

  • The exhibition Festivities and Entertainment at Court: from music to hunting, the Queen's activities during her leisure time.
  • Other venue: Until 26 of February 2017, the rest of the furniture from the Queen's State Apartment is displayed at the Mori Arts Gallery Center of Tokyo.

A new route in the palace

During the works, the State Apartments tour is modified. As they come out of the King’s Chamber, visitors go into the Bull’s Eye Room, the King’s Grand Couvert and the King’s Guard Room. They access the Queen's staircase to continue the visit with Mesdames's Apartments. Visitors can also go through the Sacre room corridor to access the Battles gallery.
