See the Queen’s home: Buckingham Palace

Posted on 15th March 2012 by

Whilst other attractions in London are described as a must-see, Buckingham Palace seems to top every single one of them with tourists. The Palace is the home of the Monarchy and is one of the most impressive buildings in the city. The Monarchy has called the palace home ever since Queen Victoria from the 19th century. Queen Elizabeth currently resides in the building, and many of the grounds are open to the public. This is usually in the summer months, and around 119 state rooms get opened to the public for tours.

On occasion, you will even find tours of some parts of the building, showing you some of the most beautiful rooms and architecture you will ever see. There are nearly 800 beautifully decorated rooms in the building.

Whether you take a tour of the building or you simply take in the breath-taking views, you’ll be pleased that you visited this notoriously beautiful home of the British Monarchy.
