    Buckingham Palace Buckingham Palace is one of the most famous Palace's in the world and is the official London residence for H.M Queen Elizabeth II as well as being used extensively by other members of the royal family. By visiting the Palace you would be getting an insight into the Royal family as well as sampling magnificent rooms like the Ballroom which is used for many purposes including state banquets for visiting Heads of State. From the visit you will also see one of the finest working stables in existence, the Royal Mews as well as sampling some of the finest works of art from the Royal collection. Hampton Court Palace The best feature about Hampton court is enormous Tudor Kitchens. The most extensive surviving kitchen in 16th century.They are present in a form like they are ready to be used just like in 16th century. Kensington Palace Kenisington Palace is one of the most favourite part of Queens and Kings, it was a center of many drama and plays at that time,the State Apartments and Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection are open to the public. The Tower of London The Tower of London has been home to the world-famous Crown Jewels since the beginning of the 14th century. Still used by the Queen and the Royal Family, the Crown Jewels are an essential part of your visit to the Tower of London. Newly displayed in 1994, it is now possible to view the Crown Jewels at close quarters. Whitehall Palace The magnificent ceiling paintings in the Banqueting House, commissioned by Charles I and executed by the famous Flemish artist Sir Peter Paul Rubens, were installed in 1636 and confirmed the Banqueting House at the forefront of princely taste. They represent the only scheme painted by Rubens to remain in its original position.
