Why locals recommend it
A visit to London’s most famous address is a must for any royals fan. You’ll visit the ballroom where state banquets are held and walk in the footsteps of HMQ leading 007 through the palace in the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony film. Picture yourself as a guest at William and Kate’s wedding, when Prince Harry turned the throne room into a disco. Buy a ticket for a curated garden tour. It’s the biggest private garden in London and very beautiful, with a 400-year-old tree and 30 bird species. The Queen keeps queen bees and makes her own honey. Get your ticket stamped by palace staff to go back for free for a year.

“Another location with a long association with British royalty, Westminster Abbey stands on a site that's been associated with Christianity since the early 7th century. Officially known as the Collegiate Church of St. Peter in Westminster, Westminster Abbey was founded by Edward the Confessor in 1065 as his place of interment. From his burial in 1066 until that of George II almost 700 years later, most sovereigns were not only crowned here but they were buried here, too. More recently, it's become famous as the preferred location for Royal Weddings.”
