It was neat to see. We got there in time to see the changing of the guards which was cool. We were a bit too far back though so we didn't see all of it. Good place to visit though

It was great to see Buckingham Palace. Unfortunately we missed the changing of the guards and tours weren't ongoing. We WILL go back.

I don't think I have ever visited London and not been to see Buckingham palace. It is very much a must see if you are visiting London. Not much to do other than look at the palace and walk around it but worth going to see as it is quite impressive and a very iconic part of the UK.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
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.
