"Walk by Buckingham Palace" Buckingham Palace Tip by AKtravelers

Buckingham Palace, London: 422 reviews and 696 photos

  A beautiful day at Buckingham Palace
by AKtravelers

Ywenty years ago, I saw the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Or, more accurately, I saw the back of a lot of heads facing the Changing of the Guard. Since then, I've seen guards change in Ottawa, Seoul and Lima, each with their own unique pagentry. Given that and my ambivelence towards the monarchy, I opted to avoid Buckingham Palace during the guard-changing time and give the place a walk-by as I strode from Hyde Park to the Houses of Parliament. You can take tours of the palace, but I had other priorities in London and really didn't want to spend such a beautiful day inside.
