“ince 1837, Buckingham Palace has been the London residence of the Royal Family and where Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, currently resides. Tourists can visit the Royal Palace, but it is only open to the public a couple of months a year: between July and October. If you are in London during these months, you can either buy the least expensive ticket which gives you access to the State Rooms and Buckingham Palace, or you can purchase slightly more expensive tickets which include a visit to the Royal Mews and The Queen’s Gallery.”
