Experience the lives of Royalty at Buckingham Palace
Possibly the most famous and iconic building in Britain, Buckingham Palace has been one of London's most popular tourist attractions for centuries. Built in 1703 for the Duke of Buckingham, it has been the royal family's official London residence since Queen Victoria decreed it in 1837. 19 state rooms are open to the public for eight weeks of the year in summer so you can get a feel of the atmosphere and surroundings when the Queen and other members of the royal family entertain guests on official state and ceremonial occasions. Even if you don't step inside, the building (its flag flying to indicate the Queen is in reside) is an awesome spectacle.
