Our guide to London: Buckingham Palace

If you want to make the most of your trip to London, you’ll want to visit Buckingham Palace.

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK’s sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch.

The official London residence of the British monarch since Queen Victoria ascended the throne in 1837.  It is placed at the end of the Mall, a wide avenue leading from Trafalgar Square, and faces the Victoria Memorial, a statue of Queen Victoria.  A statue of Nike, the ancient Greek goddess of victory, stands in front of the palace in memory of Queen Victoria too.  The Royal Banner is set on the roof when the monarch is in residence, and the Changing of the Guard takes place in the palace forecourt every day.

At Buckingham Palace, there is something suitable for the entire family to do.

The “hop on-hop off” sightseeing tour bus is a comfortable way to visit the iconic landmarks of the capital, including the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace.

Any trip to London requires a visit to Buckingham Palace and of course witnessing the Changing of the Guards is an experience you won’t want to miss!
