St. James Palace is a lesser known palace in London. It is also the “official residence” of the Sovereign, although it is not used for that purpose.
Nevertheless, it is a working palace, which means it is currently in use as the offices of the royals so it is not open to the public except by invitation. The Clarence House which houses many of the well known members of the Royal Family is also considered to be a part of these premises.
Even if you aren’t lucky enough to get invited however, it makes sense to see the Palace from the outside as it has maintained its archaic looks and the façade is absolutely exquisite. Some may not regard it as much but it is a unique palace that has its historic splendor intact.

Nice park to visit. Looks like a park frequented by plenty of runners and fitness buffs. Look out for the cyclists, they run up pretty close to you.
When in London the St James Palace is the place that is of most importance to see. It was built by the King Henry VIII and it was fascinating for me to walk arround and think of all the history which is built in. The Queen Elizabeth I lived there and also the Queen Mary I lived there, ruled, and dyed there. The architecture of the Palace is great and the building is built from the brown stone.
Beautiful by night when no one is there, one really gets the sense of living the experience as from another era.
Great for tourism! I went there for an interview, so was given the uninspiring 'workers entrance' side building guide. Still, it was extremely exciting to be in any part of the palace! Lush carpets, deep leather sofa's and high back leather studded chairs with lovely pictures of HRH. I was still very awe-struck!
.. full of very interesting stuff... a truly magnificent building
