Buckingham Palace London - Review
The Buckingham Palace is one of the many important royal landmarks that stand in London to this date. The Change of Guards of the Buckingham Palace has become a tradition that is also a huge attraction for the tourists. It takes place at 11:30 am on certain days and involves a time honoured ceremony that is certainly worth seeing.
The Palace recently formed the picturesque Background for the post-wedding public reception of the royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton. If you don’t have an idea of just how big the Buckingham Palace is, you just have to simply imagine seven hundred and seventy five rooms in a single palace. You have to visit the Buckingham Palace to truly marvel in all it’s beauty.
This place is a sprawling monument in the shades of gold and cream and every single part of it is full to the brim with the history of England. There are three places that you can visit here; The State Rooms, The Royal Mews and the Queen’s Gallery. Royal Mews is an attraction by itself, so you can check that on our website. The Queen’s Gallery houses a lovely collection of some really royal paintings and the state rooms is something everybody should definitely visit.

Buckingham Palace London, London Reviews
Amazing place to visit. I would recommend booking before hand online and also getting there early. This is a VERY popular location. You can listen to the audio tour which gives you great insight into the building, history and works of art. The British monarchy has some of the most amazing pieces of art... Do not miss it! Oh and the cakes are fab (see pic) but very pricey. I would recommend bringing a packed lunch, although you can't eat inside the palace itself. As with most places like this, you are not allowed to take photos. You are also not allowed to take in drinks, meaning that you will have to pay steep prices. Warning: if you don't bring a packed lunch thinking you can eat in the local shops... You will be astonished at the prices. I've been a Londoner all my life and central London is expensive.... But the shops surrounding Buckingham Palace are phenomenal. You'd have to walk quite a distance to get to regular prices.
Changing of the Guard is a magnificent spectacle with stirring music and a Sergeant Major bellowing out commands! The State Rooms are splendid with sumptuous wallpaper, drapes, furniture, art. Fascinating to see behind the scenes. Good cafe with nice selection of tasty sandwiches and cakes. Decent loos. Excellent, if pricey, gift shop, a good place to buy posh presents for friends and family.
Very impressive building, both on the inside as well on the inside. And as you might expect from a palace, a lot of gold, marble and shiny objects inside. So you won't be disappointed. The picture gallery has some fine art on display and the room next to it gives some insights into the personal taste of the royal family. And to finish it off, you can enjoy some high tea in the garden at the end of the tour.
I went into the place on the state tour and it was brilliant. This might be somewhat biased due to the fact I'm English and I love my country but I'd do it all again. There were a lot of paintings of British Monarchs and other royals- recent and old. All of them had this odd beauty to them and definitely had a lot of time and effort put into them. As well as the paintings there were a lot of other rooms such as a ball room, dining room and music room (with a gold piano). All of the palace is elegant and beautiful. The staff are also nice and helpful. If you wanted you could also use a tour guide which came in a multitude of languages such as French, Italian and Spanish (a lot more too). Once you left you could get lunch in the palace garden (sandwiches,scones and ice cream etc) and also tea and other drinks. Once you finished there you can go to the gift shop (which is fairly expensive). Due to the fact Megan and Harry's wedding was recent there were quite a bit of M&H themed items. Once you finished you can get ice cream (comes only a few flavours like chocolate, strawberry, mint choc chip, vanilla, caramel, mango and a few more). Finally you can either see the gardens (which was a separate tour) or you can go and see the rest of London.
What a day! We did the Royal Tour which includes The Queen's Gallery, The Royal Mews and The State Rooms. It was breathtakingly stunning and a day to remember. Wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking. The cafe is a welcome end to the tour and the gifts available in the gift shops are excellent. This is a highly recommended day out in London.
