Buckingham Palace has been the official residence of the British royal family since the 19th century. Currently, it is the London location in which the Queen spends most of her time. The palace is splendid both inside and outside. Some of the more than 600 rooms in the palace include the Throne Room, White Drawing Room, Ballroom and Picture Gallery. At the gates of Buckingham Palace, the Changing the Guard (or Guard Mounting) ceremony by the Queen's Guard takes place at 11 a.m. most days of the week. It attracts and interests tourists from around the world. Marching with great pomp and precision to military music and shouted orders, the guards—dressed in traditional red coats and bearskin hats—do a drill performance and salute.

What was constructed for the Earl of Nottingham in the seventeenth century wound up home to Diana, Princess of Wales in 1981. Prior ever, Queen Victoria was conceived here. Today it is the low maintenance living arrangement of William and Kate. You can find some brilliant shows in this royal residence that has been home to such a large number of solid and persuasive ladies. Updates finished in March 2012 improve the experience for those not sufficiently fortunate to live on these delightful grounds with new shows that incorporate a portion of Diana's dresses, repaired greenery enclosures, and "Victoria Revealed"; in which you hear the queen' s stories in her own words. Also, new shops and bistros have been incorporated.

Historical Architecture
UNESCO World Heritage-Cultural Site    
Westminster Palace in London is a magnificent example of Gothic revival architecture. It houses the parliament of the United Kingdom and is thus also known as the Houses of Parliament. In 1834, a fire destroyed most of the Palace, only sparing Westminster Hall. The building as we see it today is the result of a rebuilding process spanning many years. The needle-like spires covering the roof of the Palace nowadays were designed by the architect Charles Barry, whose most distinctive mark on the Houses of Parliament remains the bell tower housing Big Ben.
Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace

Palace
Historical Architecture
William III’s plans to rival Versailles fell apart in 1694, when the massive reconstruction of Hampton Court Palace was halted. The royal palace was thus left with both its Tudor and Baroque styles, a combination that contributes to its unique design. Inhabited by the British royal family since the 18th century, it’s now a major tourist attraction, and its park serves as the venue for the Hampton Court Palace Festival and the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

Sun - Sat 6:00 AM - 9:00 PM (Local time)
Greenwich Park - the host the Olympic Equestrian competitions, plus the entire running and shooting event of the Modern Pentathlon at London 2012 - was redesigned by Andre Le Note (the original landscaper of the Versailles in Paris). Without the Olympics, the park still has much to offer: Visitors will enjoy a majestic view of the park and of London from the Royal Observatory at the top of the park's hill. Brass bands and puppet shows during the summer set the stage for an idyllic playground of the young and young-at-heart. Accessible by riverboat, Greenwich park makes a great place to wile away a warm summer day in the city.
