You must walk by to see how immense this palace is. It goes around in a square and you can only see one wing at a time. Very historic.

We went on Sunday morning to see the changing of the guards it was very nice to see. Like something out of the past. But arrive early as there are huge crowds. You need to stand by the fence to see the changing and band.

London at any time of the year is always fun, interesting and you get a big sense of pride just travelling around , be it on foot, tube bus or taxi. No single day is the same here.

Each year I try to go to Buckingham Palace. This year the exhibit centered around Prince Charles’ art school. That was disappointing. The rest of the palace is beautiful. Each time I go I see something I hadn’t seen before. They give you headsets to...More

What a beautiful building and grounds. Was surprised how close you are to the palace. Definitely worth the walk around the block to get an understanding of placement compared to its surrounds and size.

Love Cool Britannia! Central London has many recognisable land marks and instagramable images. Buckingham Palace is impressive, went there easily on hired bikes, plenty of people taking selfies but despite that definitely recommend a visit :)

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

We were the first tour of the day at 9:30. We only did the palace tour and it took us a little less than 2 hrs. I don’t think the palace tour is any different summer or winter. We had a self guided audio tour in which... More

Tours are only available for the months of August and September. To see the palace from outside and the surrounding area is worth checking out.
