Buckingham Palace is the residence of the Queen since 1952. Visiting the place gives you a glimpse of the Revered Royalty in England. May it be the change of guards or just the State Rooms- a day at the Buckingham Palace ensures a full day of family fun.
HOW TO GO
You can take bus number 211, C1, C10 and 11, which directly halt at the Buckingham Palace Road. And the Victoria Coach Station is near the Buckingham Palace as well. It is just at 10 minutes walk from the palace.
WHEN TO GO
The Changing of the Guards is a sight many tourists want to see. And it is also free to watch, so just stand near the fence and see it. But the changing of the guards takes place between May- July at 11: 30 AM. In the summers- that is from July – September the Queen stays at her Scottish Palace Balmoral, the Buckingham Palace is open to the public. Keep in mind to book the tickets way ahead of time – Royal Collection Trust for a Royal Day Out.
WHERE TO GO
Lavish interiors with posh carpets, beautiful sculptures, glittering Candelabra makes the state rooms of the Palace come alive. It is here that the guests of William and Kate’s weddings had their share of fun. In summers the State Rooms open for visitors. After the State Rooms, do not miss the Bronze staircase designed intricately with Bronze casting. The Throne Room brings you a part of England’s Royal history- it has Thrones that are used for ceremonies. Apart from all this, the palace has an excellent collection of clocks, porcelain, and paintings to boast.
