Since 1837, Buckingham Palace has been the official London residence to the UK Monarch. At a height of 24 metres, its front is 108 metres long, and depth is 120 metres. There are 775 rooms, including 188 bedrooms for staff, 78 bathrooms, 92 offices and 52 bedrooms for royalty and guests. Official guests annually number some 50,000 people - for garden parties, lunches, dinners and state banquets. Perhaps the most famous balcony in the world, the balcony at the Palace was first used in 1851 by Queen Victoria - for the Great Exhibition. Today it's used on occasions such as Royal Weddings, the annual official birthday celebrations of The Queen and other grand occasions. During the summer months, the Palace is open to the public. A limited number of tours are available during Easter, December and January. Check the website link on this page for more information. Many tourists come to stand at the gates of the Palace where Changing the Guard takes place. Photo credits: Jean Carlo Emer, unsplash.com Luke Ow, unsplash.com Romeo A, unsplash.com
