Buckingham Palace London, London Reviews - Write a Review
Lovey and Classic place. This is a British iconic place and is a must visit place. In the day time during the noon there was too much rush so little early in the morning should be the best time to visit. Also loved the St James park nearby. It would be worth to watch the change of duty of the guards. Felt it was a great place for every tourist. Its around 10 mins walk from the nearest tube station.
It was easy to find. Apparently it's a house for one family. It's in a nice area, nice gardens. Lots of soldiers about in colourful uniforms. Is not really that interesting to look at from the outside. It's got a fence and a high wall and cameras so security is good, well I suppose the soldiers have got that covered. There are lots of people milling about behind the fence that you can stare at and wonder if they are, (or think they are) important. I wouldn't like the heating or maintenance bill. What? You're kidding me! I contributed to that.
Didn't go inside but saw the changing of the guard! Such a beautiful building. If you want to see the changing of the guard get there an hour early to be right up close or go towards the road on the left side of the building (looking at the Palace with the fountain behind you) and when those people watch the initial part and then leave to see the men walk away you can sneak to the front and watch the rest of the guard change. Truly a magical experience especially if you are a tourist.
I'll be honest, I didn't think too much of this landmark, but I also didn't spend too much time at it. My wife and I met up with her sister here and then we went off to do something else so we didn't hang around to see the changing of the guards or anything of the sort. I believe my sister-in-law saw the changing of the guard while she was waiting for us and she said it was pretty cool, but I can't personally say anything about it since I didn't see it. I feel like I needed to at least snap a few shots while I was here, but that's about all I did. There were a lot of people around, hanging about the gates and the fountains. Maybe next time we'll try to see a changing of the guards to see what all the fuss is about.
Interesting site and worth a walk through its gardens to get there. The changing of the guard is a must see for any visitors. And best of all. It’s free. Tip : If you want to avoid all the tourists and see the palace from different angles, come at night.
