Buckingham Palace is only open to the public in the summer monthes. We visited the day after it was closed to the public.This is one very breathtaking place from the outside. The Palace has been the home of the British Monarchy since Quenn Victoria decided to reside here in 1837. If you see a raised flag it means the Queen is in residence. The palace was rebuilt in 1825 and redone in 1913. The gates outside are something to see and all the ornamental statues.

Address: The Mall, SW1
Directions: Green Park tube and walk south through the park or St. James Park tube then walk north along Queen Anne's Gate west on Birdcage Walk to the gate.
