Visited on 29th. July 2015. Organisation excellent, very little queuing and tour interesting. I am computer literate but found audio equipment quite difficult to operate. Like many other people, spent more time trying to operate equipment than looking at surroundings so gave up and enjoyed tour a lot more. Staff very helpful and pleasant.

Very very well worth a visit when in London. Book on line for morning entry -the earlier the better for this tends to be less crowded. Entry and security airport- like screen fairly well organised. Fabulous paintings and furniture to be viewed in the outstanding and most memorable state rooms. Outstanding are the Blue Drawing room, the Music Room,,the State... More

An amazing show of the changing of the guard. We were here last year and it was a different routine. It was entertaining and it was full of tradition and of pop culture to keep the crowds entertained. We didn't take a tour of the palace as it was closed for the season when we were in London. We were... More

A recent visit to Buckingham palace proved a good move as they opened the state rooms for viewing. Wow what an experience.

State rooms are not normally open to the public so this was an excellent and rare treat whilst in London and only on for a limited time - until 27th September 2015. Unfortunately we visited on a very very wet Sunday morning only the second day of opening and a few teething problems getting us all in through security which... More

The organisation outside was chaotic although it was the first day opening and the staff were trying there best to keep a sliver of order in difficult circumstances. The allocated time slot was running about 30 minutes late but the wait was worth it. Inside the state rooms were stunning, so much history and beautiful objects of art. The information... More

My 16 year old daughter and I (age 47) toured Buckingham Palace. We enjoyed our visit and found the state rooms to be absolutely beautiful. We also found the tour to be very informative; we learned a fact or two (or three). The entire tour took us approximately 1.5 hours and we enjoyed every minute of it. My only complaint,... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
