Buckingham Palace, London
Buckingham Palace: See the Changing the Guard and take a tour of the most famous home in the UK
With 775 rooms, including 19 State rooms, 52 Royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms and 78 bathrooms, Buckingham Palace is a sight to behold. No visit to London is complete without walking down the Mall from Trafalgar Square and the Horse Guards, past the statue of Queen Victoria and standing outside the Queen's official residence. Buckingham Palace has served the British sovereign since 1837 and many traditions are still upheld. While you will always see the Household Division standing outside the palace in shifts and not moving a muscle, the Changing the Guard takes place on alternate days from 11:30, involving a 40-minute musical ceremony as the soldiers swap places. Meanwhile, between July and October, the palace opens its doors to tours of the State Rooms and gardens. A walk through St James's Park or to the Four Plinths in Trafalgar Square are also worth a visit as they are just nearby Buckingham Palace.
