Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of Britain's sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch.

Getting to Buckingham Palace involves walking through Green Park or from St. James Parks Station.

On the day, it rained on-and-off and because there aren't any shelter along the way, we had to sort refuge under a big tree with an umbrella. The sky cleared and we were able to carry on. It may be a good thing though as the queue and number of visitors disappeared during the rain and after the rain, the visitors number hasn't build up yet.
