Buckingham Palace is the official residence of the Queen of England and is also one of the main attractions in London . Until a few years ago you could only enter with a visit from the Queen or the previous King, but nowadays anyone can visit it, yes, with the rules and requirements established by the Royal House. Can I tell you a little bit about its history? It was built in 1703 as a house, and the royal family bought it in 1962, when King George III wanted it to be used as his private retreat since it is in a great area bordering Hyde Park.
Her son, King George IV, converted that house into the Palace that it is today, Queen Victoria being the first person from the royal family to sleep in the residence, already the Royal Palace, in 1837. Both she and her husband , Prince Albert, added one more wing to the palace to make it even bigger. With the twentieth century and the new times came the new rules, such as that of allowing visits to Buckingham Palace , although not to all parties of course.
If you are going to visit London and you want to go to the Palace, keep in mind that you can only reserve the ticket between August and September of each year, whenever you are going to travel and you can buy them in advance. Once inside, you can see the State Room, the Grand Staircase, the Picture Gallery (which has many world-famous works of art) or the Throne Room . But the most famous is undoubtedly the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace , which is once a day and always at 11:30 in the morning, although it can be canceled without prior notice due to bad weather or any other factor than the Royal House. consider.
