  • Absolutely beautiful palace. I love the architecture and old style of these buildings. The British royal family is a symbol of Britain's history and culture. Palace guards still parade and change posts with a ceremony regularly. Is lovely to watch and take pictures of this area. The gardens are immaculately groomed daily and are always picturesque.

  • Enjoyed seeing the famous palace and it’s surrounding sights. The grounds are kept well-manicured and cordoned off for safety. It would be nice to not have vehicles driving through as there can be a lot of tourists and pedestrians in the area, but it’s understandable what that would do in terms of traffic

  • Very well organized. Go early if you want to see the changing of the guard in first row. Be sure to listen to the bobbies' instructions if you want to enjoy the show better. There are some walking tours that take you to see the start and end of the trail of the parading troops. There is also a website that tells you when the changing of the guard takes place, dates and times and also the participating regiments and tunes they will play. Make sure to check it to have a more complete experience.

  • An iconic place but there are simply too many people there. Unless you arrive mega early on a Sunday you are not going to see anything of the changing of the guard. Other than Sunday mornings, it is worth visiting just to see the exterior and fountains. Especially on a summer's day. Probably one of the main things you should see on a visit to London.
