Buckingham Palace

(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)

ImageThe official residence of the queen, Buckingham Palace is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the city. Designed by John Nash and Edward Blore, the newest part of the palace was built in the 19th century around the old courtyard of the palace. Queen Victoria, upon her accession in 1837, moved into the palace, making it the official residence of the British Monarchy.
The Changing of the Guard ceremony which takes place at the palace (April to July; daily at 11:30) attracts tourists in large numbers. During the summers, when the queen retires to her Scottish Residence, tourists also have the chance to take a tour of the royal residence including the State Rooms, the Throne Room and the Picture Gallery.
