What To Expect
Nowhere is the British Monarchy more visibly intertwined with the buildings, character streets and spaces of London than in the fascinating district that comprises Royal London. The ghosts and histories of past kings and queens hang palpably in the air amongst the sumptuous palaces, monuments, vistas and parks they bequeathed to their capital city. Together, these form an unparalleled and spectacular architectural legacy that provides the unmistakable ceremonial backdrop to royal pomp and pageantry as well as some of the most dramatic and theatrical urban set-pieces in London.
Buckingham Palace, shrouded in Regency splendor and Edwardian town-planning, plays the most conspicuous role; the iconic residence that forms the world's most famous palace is the centerpiece of this grand civic opera. But it is surrounded by no less significant architectural landmarks ranging from the rambling yet impossibly romantic Tudor charm of St. James's Palace, (London's oldest royal palace and diplomatic headquarters of the royal court since 1536) to the thunderous Neo-Baroque of swooping Admiralty Arch. And framing it all is the romantic, picturesque backdrop formed by the luscious, green park-lands of Green and St. James's Park.
