Online tickets for Buckingham palace and London Sights?

by lagadoo

Looking for some tickets to Buckingham Palace this summer anyone used this company?

http://www.365tickets.com/prodhubs.cfm/tickets/Buckingham-Palace-State-Rooms/productId/119/hpid/b2fcw

I'm new to this internet stuff and could do with some tips...

Cheers,

Done a bit more digging for you - Changing of the Guard is at 11.30 but you should be in situ by 11.15 at least, and in the summer I would be there a good half hour beforehand. First tour of BP is 09.45 and as they recommend at least 2 hours, you would have to really rush to get through in time to do C of G. The BP website says an audio guide is included in the price, so obviously there is no guided tour as such and one can go at one's own pace (now I know!). The 365 tickets that you are inquiring about to order are for a specified date and time, so you would want to plan your viewing of C of G with that in mind. Why not see C of G first (takes about 30 minutes) and then go to BP for any time after 12.00 noon.

It seems my initial reply has got lost in the ether, so hope my second reply isn't too mysterious! I will now modify that first reply: I haven't used 365 tickets but then, I haven't heard or read anything negative or positive about them. I should imagine they are perfectly reliable. Lots of web places to buy tickets and I think they are all as good as each other. Buckingham Palace charges £1.50 to book online but you may feel happier using them.

You know, I am quite sure that you asked about Changing of the Guard and would taking a tour in the morning before C of G re rushing it!! It seems to have disappeared into the vast beyondness!

I'd prefer to use the official site (agencies will also charge you commission):

https://www.rceltickets.com/profile.asp

accessed from the link on:

http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/default.asp?action=article&ID=322

but agree that any ticket agency is likely to be as good as any other (and I've not heard of this one).

Re: Online tickets for Buckingham palace and London Sights?

.365 don't appear to charge commission - how they make money, lord alone knows.

Travel Tips for London

London Eye

by doreenellen

One of the best sights of a modern nature is the British Airways London Eye, by the thames. You can see a lot of the monuments and bridges from the top of the Eye.
Bookings can be made on line or by telephone. Also you are able to book on the day on days not so busy.
A tip is to get there early as you can often just get on anyway. We were lucky to get on 30 mins early and not much of a queue.

Hop On/Hop Off

by Krumlovgirl

http://www.theoriginaltour.com/ I am usually against organized tours, but I have to admit that Angie and I had a ball on this one. We had limited time in London as it was and wanted to utilize it wisely. Our thought process was that we could use the tour as general transportation and then go back to the places that we wanted to revisit. As it turned out, we just liked being chauferred around. There are two different routes, one with a live guide and one with a recording. We didn't have a preference, although the one with the recording seemed to go places that the other one didn't.

Walk along the Thames

by derry

Walk along the Thames. Take the tube to Embankment or Waterloo, and start with a coffee at the South Bank complex (National Theatre, Royal Festival Hall, National Film Theatre) where you can enjoy wonderful views across the river to the Houses of Parliament. Then carry on along the riverbank passing the Oxo Building (take a lift up to the top for incredible views across the city), Tate Modern (free entry to twentieth- and twenty-first century art), the Globe Theatre (reconstructed Elizabethan playhouse) and a recreation of Drake's ship, the Golden Hinde. Keep looking across the river - you pass Temple (the legal area, well-screened by trees) and St Paul's Cathedral. Notice also the new Millenium Footbridge. Turn away from the river when you reach the Golden Hinde and walk past Vinopolis (museum of wine) to Winchester Palace (now just a few ruins,unfortunately), and on past the ancient Borough Market and Southwark Cathedral to London Bridge station.
Alternatively, carry on along the river to see Shad Thames (former warehouses, now fashionable restaurants and shops), the Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum, HMS Belfast and Tower Bridge.
Magical! This walk is lovely by day, but perfect in early evening.

Constitution Hill

by rickyvilla81

So if you go from the gates of Buckingham Palace down to Hyde Park corner you are going down Constitution Hill. This is strangely titled, considering the UK has no constitution, and it is not even a hill. It is named for Charles II's healthy 'constitutionals', the daily walks he would take in Green Park in order to keep fit.
It was here that Sir Robert Peel, founder of the police force, fell from his horse and died in 1850. Queen Victoria nearly died here a few times from failed assassination attempts.

Evenings and sunsets along the Southbank

by angiebabe

With a high number of the London city must-sees in the vicinity of the Southbank this area is popular of course during the day but also in the evenings seeing the sun lowering to a lovely sunset and the colours of the sky changing over the river and city views. Usually in the evenings or sunset especially you will find many people around here enjoying the atmosphere and seeing the sights. Have a meal at one of the number of places to eat out around here or bring your own or from a nearby foodstall and enjoy one of the bench seats along the riverside or a spot on one of the open spaces provided.

Good views can be particularly obtained from the balconies up on the second and third stories of the Royal Festival Hall.

Must-sees in the vicinity include the Royal Festival Hall (concerts, plays, functions, and where Ive seen excellent annual ?The Times photos of the year exhibitions), the London Eye, The Imax, Oxo Tower, County Hall (The London Aquarium, Dali Museum), Haywards Gallery, Florence Nightingale Museum and just across the river Westminster and the Houses of Parliament.

Easily accessible from the transport hubs of Waterloo station or across the river at Charing Cross station, the Embankment tube station or from one of the many buses at Trafalgar Square.
