London is a place which is famous for its great capability to harbour both old and new world charms. It is place where the old as well the new still co-exist. The first place you must visit is the Buckingham Palace which is the landmark of London. It is a townhall built by John Sheffield, The Duke of Buckingham, as the Buckingham House. Every year about 8000 to 9000 tourists visit this wonderful landmark of London. It is gigantic, with a picture gallery, two tennis courts, 600 rooms, 52 royal guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 78 bathrooms. It has a very big balcony wherte the Royal family gathers on Solemn occasions.At that time you can also see the soldiers in red tunics and black pants wearing bearskin hats - simply a magnet for the tourists.
And do not miss the Queens Gallery in the palace!
