Description
Official residence of Her Majesty the Queen. Since the fire at Windsor Castle some rooms in the palace have been opened to the public. The original intention was to fund the restoration of Windsor Castle, but this is now complete and the tour is so popular that the arrangement now seems permanent, thankfully. It is a magnificent palace with important works of art. The tour is of numerous state rooms and the grand staircase.

There is also a seperate and cheaper tour of the Royal Mews which includes a look at the Gold State Coach. This is 100 yards to the Victoria side of the palace.

Changing of the Guards is a free spectacle (read more about the Changing of the Guard here). This ceremony takes place approx at 10 am and 4 pm. Several marches of guards take place at once all over St. James Park, but probably the best vantage point is outside the front gates of Buckingham Palace.

Location
In the middle of Green Park, central London. No parking. Nearest underground stations: St. Jame's Park, Green Park & Victo
