Buckingham Palace was built in 1703 and was expanded in 1761, with a total of 600 rooms is the official residence of the British monarchy since 1837. Ever since Queen Victoria moved here brought the custom to fly the flag on the building as a sign that the king or queen is inside.

Since 1990 the palace was opened to visitors and get to be a very busy tourist objective. It is one of the most famous, beautiful and full of history sights buildings in Britain, a true symbol of the Royal House.

To the delight of tourists here are made daily Change Guard ceremonies, being one of the most interesting and ancient ceremony kept for years.
