Buckingham Palace - London

Buckingham Palace is Queen Elizabeth's London residence. The palace was built in 1705 for the Duke of Buckingham. Since 1837, it has been the home and official headquarters for British monarchs.

The Palace has 775 room, including 19 state rooms and 92 offices. Although a private home, its collections equal most national museums and galleries and it hosts 50,000 invited guests a year.

It is located between Green Park, St. James Park and Hyde Park, which is to say it is surrounded by lovely public open spaces with gardens and ponds - a truly wonderful place to stroll amidst one of the world's largest cities.
