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

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
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
