Buckingham Palace serves as both the office and London residence of Her Majesty The Queen. It is one of the few working royal palaces remaining in the world today. During a visit to Buckingham Palace, visitors can see the nineteen magnificent State...more
It is so much larger than pictures can show and breathtaking to see. The statue in front of it is incredibly detailed. Very busy depending on time of visit so be prepared to dodge other photographers during peak times.
We had a chance to tour Buckingham Palace (the Queen was not in residence). Obviously very historical and interesting. The headsets that are provided work well and provide a lot of information. You may get special headsets for families, which are geared to things that...More
We were in London for 5 days and would tell others this is a must see. We purchased tickets in advance and was the first group to enter that day. It is a self guided audio tour which is nice because we never felt rushed....More
We have been fortunate to visit Buckingham Palace on two occasions. Oncean important part of our heritage., about ten years ago to a garden party and on the second occasion we took the tour. Great value for money and a fantastic glimpse into
We were there last year and witnessed the iconic pageantry of the changing of the guard. That’s an amazing site. Check schedules and get there early for a good spot. This visit there was no scheduled activity, so it was easy to get some closer...More
We had a 9.30 am ticket so were in the first group through for the day. Recommend arriving 20 mins prior to line up as there are crowds. The line and entry was very professionally managed and we moved through efficiently. Plenty of staff on...More
My wife and I walked to Buckingham Palace from our hotel and when we arrived we saw the changing of the guard over the tops of the crowd. And then it started to rain - this is England is it not. Great experience, nevertheless. Tickets...More
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
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

I booked tickets for summer 2018 from the Palace website in December 2017. Dates are limited to when the Royal Family are not in residence over the summer, from 22 July - 23 September for this summer. They will be similar in 2019 but I suggest keeping an eye on the website and booking as early as possible as it is hugely popular and well worth the visit. Helen
