Buckingham Palace Introduction

Even if you haven't been invited to one of those exclusive garden parties with the VIPs of Britain and beyond, you can still catch a glimpse of the sheer majesty of Buckingham Palace from outside. A masterpiece of French neoclassicism, it rises like a sparkling jewel above The Mall and St James's Park. The Changing of the Guard has long been one of the capital's must-see processions. And sometimes you can even delve inside, to admire the great portraits of the Queen's Gallery and explore the court rooms where Queen Victoria once trod.
