Buckingham Palace is one of London’s leading tourist attractions. Official residence of the British Royal Family, the railings around this magnificent palace fill with the faces of eager locals and visitors wanting to see the changing of the guard. Very close by are St James’s Palace and St James’s Park. This park is the oldest of the royal parks in the capital and is a wonderful gateway to Buckingham Palace which is located within its borders. A 10 minute walk will bring you to Victoria Station, London’s most important rail station.
