One of the essential sights of a first time visit to London, United Kingdom is the home of the queen: the Buckingham Palace. It was built in the year 1703 for the Duke of Buckingham and continuously enhanced afterwards. Often foreign state guests are welcomed here.
Tourists get there to see the fantastic facade of the building and the enormous fountain in front. Also you can see the changing of the guards ceremony. Parts of the palace are open to the public twice a year. Chances are bad to get inside or to become part of the garden feasts held here – but the palace is definitely worth a look from the outside and as it is not located far away from Westminster you should simply once pass by.
