Visiting Buckingham Palace has got to be a must see on your visit to London! It is an incredible building with so much history. If you're really lucky you'll catch the changing of the guards which has been done the same way for many decades.

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

The gardens are part of the tour, though you have to purchase the food and drink as the ticket doesn't include that. The gardens are lovely!
