Buckingham Palace is known globally as the hub of national and royal festivals as well as the changing of the guard ceremony. The public is allowed to explore and visit the staterooms which are open for 10 weeks during summer and on chosen dates during winter and spring. The prices can vary from £24 to £61.50 and for children below the age of five, the tickets are free. People can also view some exhibitions such as ‘the Prince and patron.’
