Newest Review: ... Bags are screened - the couple in front were surprised to find a kitchen knife in their bag which of course had to be handed in - and you go through the usual metal detector gateway. I of course set this off as my raincoat has metal decoration. You are also told to switch off all smartphones, ipads etc as photography in the State Rooms is strictly verboten. Large items of baggage, ... more

Until recently I have always been proud to declare myself a Republican. I still fiercely object to being called a subject. I'd much rather be seen as a citizen. But since the Diamond Jubilee my position has softened. I don't mind saying that I think the Queen has done - indeed continues to do - a good job. With the exception of completely misjudging the sense of the nation when Princess Diana died, I don't think she's put a foot wrong. So I was not totally adverse to a friend's suggestion that we go to the summer opening of Buckingham Palace and see the 60TH anniversary of the Coronation exhibition.

The idea to visit Buckingham Palace was initially a bit of a throwaway remark. I expected it to be ridiculously expensive, but we had our trip to London booked which included my birthday and I was just browsing around the internet for possible things to do. When I reached the "Royal Collections" website and saw that the State Rooms tour was £19 per adult, it suddenly became a real possibility, which rapidly (i.e. booked in minutes!) became a firm date. Booking ~~~~~ The website is clearly laid out with a large "visit" tab at the top, which offers the options of State Rooms, Royal Mews, Queens Gallery and Clarence House. Clicking ...

I have been to the Buckingham Palace for numerous occasions, mostly to see the Changing of Guards with friends/family who come for a visit, but it took me as long as three years to actually get myself a ticket and see the State Rooms for myself! I have visited several other residences including the Palace of Holyrood House and the Windsor Castle, and I will have to say that this is probably my favourite -- a visit to the Buckingham Palace is a very relaxing (albeit short) visit that makes you intrigued about the mechanics of this working residence of the Royal Famiy. TICKETS I believe there are two main tickets that gain you entry into the Buckingham ... Read the complete review

Buckingham Palace. I recently visited Buckingham palace making this my fifth visit to the palace taking relatives or visitors to the palace when they have stayed with us. On this occasion it was a special treat for some friends who had never been and had wanted to go. You might think that it would not be interesting having been a few times. Nothing could be further from the truth. The first time visiting the palace you are absolutely in awe of the interior and the opulence that is contained within the palace walls and you fail to notice the finer details. Each time I have visited I have noticed more and more things which I had not noticed from the times ... Read the complete review

My husband and I visited Buckingham Palace this past weekend and I definitely have to recommend it, it is well worth a visit and makes you quite proud to be English when you are there. As we all know Buckingham Palace is the official London residence of the British Monarch. In recent years they have taken the decision to open up some of the state rooms to the public to keep up with the times and promote themselves as a forward thinking monarchy. This only happens in summer (this year, 29th July to 29th September) as the rest of the time the family still live there. Buckingham Palace is one of the last working palaces in the world. My visit first ... Read the complete review
