Enjoyed seeing this time honored tradition. Not as nice as it was in 2013 before barriers had to be erected for safety

Beautiful setting. You can feel that it is the icon of London. A great place close to a park where jogging or picnic are great during summer.

Has to be a must see in London. Our visit to see the 11am Changing of the Guard was good with many photo opportunities away from the palace near the roundabout nearby. This was because the crowd was 10 deep around the gates with police...More

We got to the palace about 8:45 pm. Still enough light to see the area, only about a dozen people milling about. Saw the changing of the guards at 9:00pm. Quite a treat since we had no idea of when this occurs.

Just by pure luck we went to visit at lunch time and the queen was pulling out a few minutes after we got there - I even got a video - we didnt stay for the changing of the guard

We were not lucky to be on time to see the change of guard but just strolling around the fountain and looking at the outside of the Buckingham Palace to appreciate its architecture. Not for the 10-year old who felt it was BORING! well expected...More

Always been on our bucket list. Changing of the guard, the band, the horses... all really cool. But get ready for big crowds as hundreds of others plan to do the same thing ~ every day.

Buckingham Palace is of course a site that you must see in London at least once, and it is best done while exploring Hyde Park.

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

Yes, the guards are on duty outside of the palace 24/7...but you're right, there's really not that much to see. Other than a guard standing still in his guard hut, there's not much. And, depending upon which branch of the... More
