Buckingham Palace

London, United Kingdom

The official London residence of the British Monarch, Buckingham Palace is steeped in history. Feel like the ambassador to your own personal kingdom when you ogle the ornate décor of one of the 19 State Rooms where the monarchy entertains visiting dignitaries. Or witness the pomp and pageantry of the Changing of the Guard, the 45-minute ceremony in which one regiment replaces another’s palace watch. No trip to Buckingham Palace is complete without attempting to make the guards flinch -- just don’t land yourself in a British jail.
