The guides describe the Buckingham Palace design as "respectable decadence". Drop-shaped chandeliers, 18th century portraits, golden-cream tones of the ceremonial rooms, flower arrangements - the refined taste of Queen Elizabeth is felt in everything.
Guided tours of the palace can only be conducted when the royal family is not there. The route leads through the public and ceremonial halls at the rear part of the residence. The following are particularly impressive:
- 50 m art gallery;
- 14 m high ballroom, where the queen bestows title of the knight;
- music room - the place where the three eldest children of Queen Elizabeth were baptized;
- thick garden in the backyard.
Tickets can only be purchased for August and September when the royal family leaves for Scotland. If you are in London at a different time and see the red-yellow-blue flag over Buckingham Palace, at least you will know that the queen is at home.
