Historic buildings of London

London is a place of power, royalty and historic splendour, a great 21st century world city that throws open the doors of its most famous palaces, cathedrals and churches for you to visit. Buckingham Palace, the residence of Queen Elizabeth II, allows visitors in for a few months in the summer to admire the lavish state rooms where heads of state are entertained and royal banquets are still held in the style of years gone by. The Queen was crowned at Westminster Abbey, where the Coronation Chair is one of the many highlights, with tickets available ahead of your visit.
Advance booking is also advised for London's most important castle, The Tower of London, a place of both royal residence and of terror, where traitors were held and executed - and where red-clad Beefeaters stand guard over the Queen's Crown Jewels today. Nearby, majestic St Paul's Cathedral and its celebrated dome became a symbol of Britain's stubborn resistance during the sustained bombings of World War II. Your tickets take you inside to a magnificent interior and up to the whispering gallery, high in the dome itself. Hampton Court Palace is a monument to the extravagance of King Henry VIII, a man of vast appetites. Admission to Hampton Court takes you to his vast Great Hall, scene of epic banquets and to the beautiful gardens, including the famous maze, on the banks of the River Thames. Like all of London's greatest buildings, this is a vivid monument to an extraordinary history.
