LONDON, July 08, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Buckingham Palace is once again giving visitors an opportunity to peek behind the scenes of one of the World's grandest royal palaces. As one of the world's last remaining working palaces opportunities to survey the glorious interiors of Buckingham Palace are few and far between, making the annual Summer Opening an especially valuable chance for the public to explore this famous building.
The Summer opening once again grants visitors access to the lavishly decorated State Rooms where they will encounter some of the royal collection's finest treasures including painting by Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Poussin and Canaletto. Sculpture by Canova and Chantrey along with fine Sèvres porcelain are also amongst the highlights.
With the arrival of Prince George still fresh in everyone's minds, this year's Summer Opening features a special Royal Childhood exhibition. The show will offer a fascinating glimpse into the formative years of royal children throughout the last 250 years, featuring toys, outfits and never before seen images.
