World, please be on your best behavior as you visit the wonderfully lavish Buckingham Palace in London this summer.

As CNN reminds, tourists will be afforded a rare look inside the iconic landmark this summer as the Queen’s residence opens for tours from July 25 to September 27.

Normally, a trip to the palace means standing outside the gates for the famed changing of the guard.

Thanks to a well-deserved respite for Queen Elizabeth II, who will be in Scotland for the ensuing months, tourists will get a first-hand look at the extravagance afforded the royal family as well as dignitaries that have walked these posh halls.

As the following Associated Press report states, the tours have been ongoing each summer since 1993:

And this video from the Royal Collection Trust, via YouTube, gives an in-depth look at what visitors might enjoy while walking around the luxurious confines:

The British Monarchy’s Twitter feed offered the following lavish images of the palace as well:

As for the particulars, interested parties can visit the Royal Collection Trust’s official website for more details.

Entrance will run £20.50, or about $32 for adults, and £11.80 ($18.30) for those under 17 years of age.

There is a special treat for 2015 visitors, via RCT: “For the first time ever, visitors to the Summer Opening will enter the State Rooms through the Grand Entrance, used by those who come to the Palace at the invitation of The Queen, including Heads of State and Prime Ministers.”

CNN also states that for a nominal fee you can enjoy tea; just keep your feet off the furniture, please.
