Buckingham Palace


The tourists crowd to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.

One of the biggest attractions in London is Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II's home when she's in town. Tourists flock here to see the changing of the guard, to visit the palace (summer tours help pay for the maintenance), and to see special exhibitions.

The Queen's Gallery which displays many of the Royal Treasures including paintings by Rembrandt, Rubens, Vermeer, Poussin, Canaletto and Claude; sculpture by Canova and Chantrey; French porcelain, and some of the finest English and French furniture in the world is now open.
