Buckingham Palace

London’s regal centrepiece, Buckingham Palace, is the city’s most iconic landmark and busiest tourist attraction. The London residence and administrative headquarters of Her Majesty the Queen, Buckingham Palace is the thriving epicentre of the British monarchy.

The palace’s origins date as far back as the Middle Ages when it existed as part of the Manor of Ebury. Under new Crown ownership in the late 18th century, the manor house was renovated, remodelled and refurbished. By the end of the 1700s, the residence was being referred to as “Buckingham Palace” for the first time.

Becoming the principal royal residence in 1837, the transformation was complete and the Buckingham Palace of today was officially born.
