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.

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...More

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
