Royal Attractions in Great Britain

ROYAL PALACES:
Buckingham Palace (London)
The principal official residence of Her Majesty The Queen: as both a home and office. The Queen's personal standard flies when the Queen is in residence. Furnished with works of art from the Royal Collection, the buildings are used extensively by the Queen for state ceremonies and official entertaining. Public opening is as much as such commitments allow and, it has to be said, might not always be available! (Don't expect to penetrate too far within the Palace and grounds, or to bump into the Queen or Duke: royalty need their space!)

Visitors may also see the Royal Mews, one of the finest working stables in the world. This is where the Queen's magnificent state carriages and coaches are housed, together with their horses and state liveries.
Windsor Castle (Berkshire)
An official residence of Her Majesty The Queen - when she gets bored with Buckingham Palace and wants somewhere a little more cozy! The Queen's personal standard flies when the Queen is in residence.

A significant portion of the castle is opened to visitors on a regular basis, including the Upper and Lower Wards, the North Terrace, Queen Mary's Dolls House, and the State Apartments including St. George's Hall, the Crimson Drawing Room and other rooms newly restored after the devastating fire. Like Buckingham Palace, you can see the Changing of the Guard (here at 11 am daily from April to the end of June, and on alternate days at other times of year).

PLATINUM
HISTORIC ROYAL PALACES:
The Tower of London (London)

William the Conqueror began building the Tower of London in 1078. It was originally designed to be a royal residence, but over the subsequent 900 years it was used variously as a royal fortress, mint, armoury and, more infamously, as a prison and the place of some famous executions. To stay here happily you had to keep your head! Visit the White Tower, - the original Tower of London - to see the Block and Axe, Tudor arms and armour, and the Instruments of Torture. Inside, the Yeoman Warder 'Beefeaters' give free guided tours and recount all the grisly details. Residents who lost their heads here include two of Henry VIII's wives - who were conveniently laid to rest in the nearby chapel. Visit to breath in some history - but behave yourself!

For the last 600 years the Tower has housed the Crown Jewels. These can be seen in the magnificent new Jewel House, and are still used by Her Majesty The Queen for ceremonies such as the State Opening of Parliament.

This site covers:
  • The Tower of London
  • The Banqueting House
  • Kew Palace
  • Hampton Court Palace
  • Kensington Palace

This similarly regal site also provides good coverage and detail. This has a slightly different approach with pictures a more reasonable size in the first place. Slightly curious are pictures we feel we would like to click, with legends beneath them telling us to click elsewhere. Strange - and the only reason this drops the award from Platinum to Gold!
