"Buckingham Palace" Buckingham Palace by grandmaR

Buckingham Palace Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 46 photos

When we were here in 1950, we had free access to the front of Buckingham palace. We watched the changing of the guard and so on.

But now, no buses can go in the front of Buckingham Palace so the closest picture I got was from the bus as it drove by (top picture). When my grandson and I visited, we got a taxi to drop us off by the Victoria monument

After having seen several palaces and castles in Ireland (Bunratty, Muckross House, Blarney Castle and Kilkenny), my grandson wanted to see Buckingham Palace, which I think he thought would be grander than the others that he had seen. He found Buckingham somewhat disappointing in scale.

    I've yet to see the Changing of the Guards, but love the AA Milne poem about it! Happy smiley pictures of your family.
