"Buckingham Palace" Buckingham Palace Tip by littlesam1

Buckingham Palace, London: 422 reviews and 696 photos

  Buckingham Palace
by littlesam1

Much like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace is one of those must see places in London. And here I add another picture to the hundreds already on VT of Buckingham Palace.

We were in London during August 2002. This was during the celebration of the Queens anniversary. We toured the Palace really enjoyed it. However we had one small mishap. We were in one of the Queens reception rooms. While there I laid down my umbrella and left it. And as I stated in my cover page for London, we were there for one of the worst rainfalls of the year in London. So we had to buy another umbrella on the street after we left the Palace. If you go to London and take a tour of Buckingham Palace and happen to see the Queen with a small dark blue folding umbrella would you please let her know its mine.
