There isn't a lot to see at Buckingham Palace. I'm glad I did see it but i was happy that we were going to see several other things around our trip. It's definitely not worth seeing all alone.

Changing of the guard is fun! Crowds everywhere but still easy to get a great view. Check for times to see changing of the guard.

Visited the Buckingham Palace Staterooms on the opening day. Amazingly well laid out and organised. The commentary was informative for the adults and kids alike. This kept them well entertained which I was worried about (5 > 9 y/olds). The only down side was the...More

We had a very good time in the palace. It is breathtaking. We enjoyed specially the garden. Everything was organized and well presented. The churchill exhibition is 🔝.

Certainly not worth the trip to see. If you are nearby, then go just to say you've seen it. So dull and boring. Some glitzy gates, but so what?

We didn't do the Changing of the Guards and opted to just walk down later one evening. We were there about 8:30/9:00 at night and there were very few people around. We took our pictures of the monument and guards and just looked around. We...More

We had experienced the changing of the guard ceremony previously so we skipped it this time. Nice to walk by the Palace (can't visit London without seeing it) but enjoyed the horse guard parade grounds more. Royal Mews can be interesting to view the beautiful...More

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
