Buckingham Palace

Place to visit

View the life of Royalty at Buckingham Palace Probably the best known and iconic building in Britain, Buckingham Palace has been one of London's most famous tourist attractions for centuries. Designed in 1703 for the Duke of Buckingham, it's been the official residence of the Royal Family in London since it was decreed by Queen Victoria in 1837. 19 state rooms are open to the public for eight weeks of the year in the summer, and you can experience the atmosphere and the scenery as the Queen and other members of the royal family welcome visitors on official state and ceremonial occasions. And if you don't go inside, the building (its flag flying to signify the Queen's residence) is an amazing spectacle.
