    This is one of the sides of buckingham that we dont often see. Every now and then the Palace will open rooms or sections to the public. They are temporary exibitions, quite often worth seeing.

    ...in front of the world's most famous house. Impressive gates, less impressive house, but still significant for its pomp and history.

    No, she wasn't home...

    During summer period (april - july) you can see the changing of the guards every day at 11.30. And during the winter period every other day also at 11.30. this parade lasts about 45 minutes.

    Watch the beautiful decorations of the gates of Buckingham palace. Like this escutcheon which is surrounded by a Lion and a Unicorn.

    The gates are decorated very beautifully, as you can see on this picture, which is a detail of the gate which leads to Green Park.

    Always worth a visit. The Mall is closed for cars on sunday so that makes it better togo there. Much more quiet too.

    It's only opened to visitors 2 month out of the year, so I only got to see it from out side the gates. It's also difficult to see the guards. You can get a much closer look at them at the tower.

    See the changing of the guards or just marvel at the beauty of the place. Is this where the phrase 'pomp and circumstance' came from?
