The official residence and administrative headquarters of the reigning monarch, Buckingham Palace is a major tourist destination. It is located in the City of Westminster.
Buckingham Palace is one of the most iconic buildings in the city of London and it is extremely famous for the city's most popular display of circumstance, the Changing of the Guard. This ceremony takes place around 11:30 in the morning in every season where one can witness precision marching along with music and orchestra. The Palace was built in 1837 and has continued to be the residence of the Royal family from the time of Queen Victoria. One way to know whether the Queen is in the palace or not is by looking at the flagpole at the top of the building. If the royal standard is flying, she is present there. On several special occasions, the Queen may also come to the central balcony. There are 19 rooms which are open to the visitors during August and September during the time when the Queen makes her annual visit to Balmoral.
