4.6/5 (279)

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of Britain's sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch. The 19 State Rooms at the palace are regularly used by the Royal family to entertain guests on their State, ceremonial and official visits to the United Kingdom. These beautifully lavish rooms are open to the Public every summer. Choose from a variety of tours and tickets to this must-see attraction in London!

The Palace began as Buckingham House for the first Duke of Buckingham and Normanby in 1703. Later it was sold to George III and became a private retreat for Queen Charlotte. Decades later King George IV began extensive renovations which continued to grow in scope and cost. In 1837 it became the main royal residence for Queen Victoria.

Since then, the Palace has often been at the center of state occasions and royal hospitality. It also survived frequent bombings in World War II, although the palace chapel was destroyed. Today it stands a symbol of the British royalty and their unwavering dedication to UK citizens. It is a popular place to visit, both for locals and international travelers.

Be sure to visit at the right time of day so you can experience one of the most popular tourist attractions in London, the Changing of the Guards. Everyday, the guards who watch over the Buckingham Palace are "relieved" of their duties with a ceremony and replaced with a new group of soldiers.
