This place is interesting to see. We unfortunately picked a weekend that was a long weekend and therefore there were sooooo many people in all of London. But it was good to see and be able to walk in the gardens, and enjoy the nice...More

The front façade is much smaller in person than in pictures. The statues and gold fences showcase the significance of such a prestigious palace.

We viewed from outside the changing of the guard lots of people about due to the upcoming weeding of Harry and Meagan

We did the champagne evening tour as a special family night on our trip to London. We were all dressed up and hoping for a nice family photo as part of the evening. Not only do they not allow you a photo at any point...More

Gotta drop in and see royalty when in London. Changing of the guard happens daily at 11am. Don't need to spend a heap of time there, take your "selfie" with the palace in the background and rhen check out the neighboring parks.

Not much to see here. I'd only stop by if you happen to be in the area. Royal stuff doesn't interest me .

Got to the palace early to watch the changing of the guard. While my wife and I had seen it before our travelling companions had not. Always enjoy the pomp and ceremony. It was a wonderfully sunny day which always makes it special. Highly recommend...More

Drove past on our way out of London on our Contiki bus. Was very surprised to see how big the grounds were. The red road up to the palace was also interesting. Very good too see in person even from a bus

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
