Best Palaces in London
Local Recommendations from our My Guide London team
The Palaces of London are the cornerstones of the city, the pillars on which its reputation, history and heritage stand tall and proud. Even better, they're accessible to the public, drawing in tourists in their droves year on year.
Obviously, the figure-head of the London Palaces and stately homes is the one in Buckingham. Call it what you like, the Queen's official residence is the cream of the crop among London's architectural and historical scene. Used for a plethora of meetings and events, Buckingham Palace is as much a magnet for tourists as it is a necessity for the royal family and the politicians of London.
