Tour The Palaces

Large arrow left

The residence and office of Her Majesty The Queen, Buckingham Palace is one of the few working palaces of the world. It is used by the Queen to entertain guests of State. However, a portion of the Palace is open to the public. This includes rooms adorned with paintings by masters such as Rembrandt and Rubens. This iconic Royal building also boasts of the largest private gardens in London. Time your visit to include the elaborate Changing the Guard ceremony at The Buckingham Palace. There is nothing quite like seeing the bearskin hats, red uniforms, and gold buttons of the guards in person.

Follow it up with a visit to the grandiose Hampton Court Palace. The Tudor kitchens are especially impressive. The art-deco elegance and expansive gardens of the Eltham Palace are also recommended for Palace connoisseurs.
