Buckingham Palace serves as a splendid reminder of the monarch's continued importance in British culture. If you visit during August or September, you'll have the opportunity to tour the palace's opulent staterooms. The queen receives and entertains guests and conducts special ceremonies in these spaces. Many of the furnishings date back to the 1830s, when King George IV transformed Buckingham House into a palace. On your tour, you'll learn how the monarch uses each of the 19 staterooms, hear colorful history relating to these spaces, and see numerous works in the British royals' art collection. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, because the tour lasts from 2-2.5 hours and stretches out over 0.8 km (0.5 miles). Photography is not permitted inside. If you visit outside of August and September, you can still watch the changing of the guard outside the palace.

  • Must-see attraction, both in changing of the guard from the Queen, for this important information from the days when the exchange occurs, and it's nice to get at least 1 hour before to get a privileged place in which you can see everything clearly, because majorly. Then it's worth buying a ticket to meet inside the Palace. The price is a little steep but it's worth, I've been in several palaces in Europe, but Buckingham is without a doubt the most beautiful person I've ever met. Worth every penny of the ticket.

  • If you a tourist and you're in London this is definitely a place to go. Great views, really neat to see such a piece of history. AVOID DRIVING. The traffic is TERRIBLE.
  • A national attraction that's central and easy to observe THE event- the changing of the guard. A pleasant stroll from many other London attractions (don't recommend driving around central) it's a spectacular building with glorious surroundings. Many large events happen in the area and if you're in London it's worth spinning by.
  • On a sunny summers day it's great to drive from Trafalgar square through the arches into the mall to be greeted by the the dazzling golden statue in front of the palace. And as you drive up the tree and flag lined mall towards the palace you meet the sour expressioned queen victoria statuesque and regal. Clearly this is her domain - her home you are approaching.
  • It's beautiful. We went to see the changing of the guard. It gets full quickly, so I'd recommend getting there and waiting hours or use a selfie stick to record it. The marching band is awesome!
