Buckingham Palace is the official residence of the Queen and is without doubt the top landmark to visit in London. It was built in 1702 as a large townhouse for John Sheffield, 1st Duke of Buckingham (1647 – 1721) and was transformed into a palace during the 19th century, and became the London residence of the British monarch on the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837. The current palace contains 775 rooms, including 19 stunning state rooms which is where the Queen entertains her guests and visiting dignitaries. These rooms are open for public viewing during the summer months with guided tours and contain incredible antiques, furnishings and art from the Royal Collection.
