  • I was here in October 2016 with my boyfriend convinced to find London guards as mentioned by other reviewers. Of them even a shadow. No big deal, don't bother. There are other attractions by far the nicest I've seen during my 3 visits to this beautiful city. I don't recommend it.

  • St. James's Palace is located in the heart of old London in the street not far from the Mall, Paull Piccadilly. Great place for photos with guard people a little bit, so it's easy to approach the horse protection. Built by order of King Henry VIII on the site of the Hospital of St. James for lepers still in 16 century, St. James's Palace was the favourite residence of Kings until the 18th century. It was born many heirs to the throne. Nowadays the Palace's role is the administrative centre of the monarchy: here is the Royal Court and how many centuries ago, it arrange a Royal Wedding and formal receptions for foreign ambassadors have look at this modest red brick Palace, the oldest in London.

  • Of course it's a famous place, but nowhere near as famous as its neighbor, Buckingham Palace. We watched the honor guard march in and out.  more »

  • Tudor official residence of the Sovereign is surrounded by an an impressive concentration of London's grandest and eminent buildings in close proximity. A tourist cornucopia.
  • Great for sightseeing as it's very close to other big attractions!
  • It is constructed in the 16th Century, but he biggest part of the palace is from the 17th Century.
  • Enjoyed our day out good guided tour with a meal after in china town
  • If you go to Malborough Road and you can see the changing the guard with less people to compete with.
