Of course you can only see the palace from a distance but I’m still glad we went. Windsor Castle allows you to go inside and see the chapel and the state apartments so is a better choice. Of course you have to pay to go...More

Many years ago as a despatch-rider, I went to Buckingham Palace to deliver a parcel and somehow managed to find myself in the middle of it. At the time I told the security guard who ushered me out that I would be back and that...More

If you are visiting London, this would definitely on your list. But make sure you come here on the day of the changing of guards. 2 hours of show, you get to see the regiments dressed up in their finest marching up and down the...More

A beautiful place for a run. If in town looking for a running option consider the loop around green park and back up by buckingham palace. Message me if you need more runs.

Get there in the morning before the crowds come or you will not be able to get a clear view of the Palace. Also be sure to allow lots of time for walking around the area. Stroll Birdcage Walk and The Mall.

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

Yes the guards are always on duty but you need to be there at a certain time in order to see the changing of the guards.
