It's a beautiful palace to see. Impressive guards are at the gate of the palace. London is a great city.

A beautiful place for a run. If in town looking for a running option consider the loop around green park and back up by buckingham palace. Message me if you need more runs.

Get there in the morning before the crowds come or you will not be able to get a clear view of the Palace. Also be sure to allow lots of time for walking around the area. Stroll Birdcage Walk and The Mall.

Just had my 11th summer visit to the palace. It is an amazing place. Whether you'r a royalist or not (which I am) it is a must visit. The spendour of the State Rooms is something not to be missed. Not forgetting the cafe' in the garden. Also the shop is a treat in it's self. The range of gifts is unbelieveable,

Changing of the Guard always makes me feel so proud. The turn-out and marching of the guards is so amazing.

One of London's must see attractions. You can have it easy way and have a "through the fence" glance or if interested try to plan your visit to see a bit more of it. It is worth it!

> Changing guards - regular time 11am. It may change on some days so check the specific date online while planning your visit.
It may be crowded so make sense to be there ahead of time.

> Royal Mews - open from February to November. Working stables where you can see carriages, coaches, horses and cars used by Royal Family on official occasions. That includes Gold State Coach which is just stunning!
The ticket is 11 pounds per person (6,5 under 17).

> The Queen's Gallery - changing exhibitions from the Royal Collection, featuring old master paintings, rare furniture, decorative arts and images from the vast photograph collection.
The ticket is 12 pounds per person (6 under 17).

> The State Rooms - working part of the palace. You can see several rooms (including ball room, throne room, a few dressing rooms and a stunning art gallery), great number of art, china, portraits furniture gathered within hundreds of years.
The way out leads you through palace gardens so no rush! The exit is to the Grosvenor closer to the Wellington Arch.
Open to visitors July to September (and some dates in other months so make sense to check online).
The ticket is 25 pounds for adult and 14 for kids under 17 (for 2019 season). Make sense to book online and in advance as some days might be sold out as this is high tourist season. You arrive on a specific time slot so waiting time is limited to the security check for the group.
This place might be very crowded - agree a meeting spot outside because use of a mobile phone is not allowed inside :)

By going when we did, we could go inside the Palace on a tour. Worth every penny...loved seeing this Grand Old building and its gardens.

It's a nice palace - from the outside. No idea if we can go in. I went to the famed guard change ceremony. It was very very crowded. The guard changing it nice. Waved at some fancily dressed royalty. The whole thing seemed a bit too snobbish for me.

Came to see People's Parade and wanted to share our thanks to those who died in WW1. THE Palace was wonderful in the sun. A sense of calmness hung in the air despite all the organisation needed to control crowds. The guards looked superb and we were really proud to be English. Police were friendly, polite and informative. So worth a visit and reasonably priced Palace shops.
