Buckingham Palace

Recommendation by Lemi

Start your photo walk early in the morning at Buckingham Palace. Beat the crowds for some good snaps, as The Queen’s royal abode is a popular tourist destination. Take your wide shots of the exterior and monuments while the coast is clear. As the sea of visitors thickens, zoom in on the details. A perfect portrait spot is in front of the ornate gold and black iron gates. Photography and filming are prohibited in the State Rooms within the Palace. It is highly encouraged, though, in the Buckingham Palace Gardens. Stay ’til noon to witness The Guard Mounting ceremony, which starts at 11:00AM daily. Wellington Barracks and St. James’ Palace, flanking the Palace on both sides, are the best place to catch the guards before and after the ceremony.
