- The Queen lives here
- Surrounded by expansive gardens
- A true treat for history buffs
The official royal residence since 1837, Buckingham Palace is, quite literally, the home of the British monarchy.
Today, much of the building is dedicated to the administration offices of Queen Elizabeth II, and is the center of many cultural celebrations (some famous weddings spring to mind).
While your chance of seeing royalty is pretty low, you should aim to see the elaborate “Changing of the Guard” ceremony, which takes place at 11AM Monday - Saturday, and 10AM on Sundays. It usually lasts around 30 minutes.

When you travel with Journy, your personal trip designer will provide up-to-date information on specific COVID-19 policies and considerations.
