Missed Your Chance at Marrying a Royal?  You Can Still Play the Part Visiting These Popular Royal Destinations in London!

6 London Attractions to Visit When You Want to Feel Like Royalty

1.   Buckingham Palace

Fancy a view of the Queen?  You may (or may not) find her at her official London residence, Buckingham Palace.  With 775 rooms, she has plenty of spots to hide from the crowds!  But it’s one of the few working royal palaces in the world today.  This is also where hoards of people gather to see the famous Changing of the Guard.

2.   Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace is the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (that’s William & Kate!).  It’s been a residence of the British Royal Family since the 17th century.  On a tour here you can view an exhibit of Princess Diana’s dresses, learn more about Queen Victoria’s life in another exhibition, or visit the ornate King’s State Apartments!

3.   Tower of London

The Tower of London is one of the world’s most iconic buildings.  And you can take a tour of this impressive destination!  Over its 900-year existence, it has been a palace, prison, and even a zoo!  It’s also where you’ll find the collection of Crown Jewels.

4.   Hampton Court Palace

There’s plenty to see at Hampton Court Palace, the long-ago residence of King Henry VIII.  Take a tour with costumed guides and be sure not to miss the incredible maze outside in the palace’s formal gardens!

5.   Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle is a half-hour train ride outside of London, but it’s certainly worth a trip for fans of the Royals!  It’s where Harry and Meghan wed.  And it’s the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world.  On a tour you can view art from the Royal Collection and Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House, the largest dollhouse in the world.

6.   Westminster Abbey

Y’all, this is where William and Kate tied the knot!  Westminster Abbey sees 1+ million visitors each year, with people coming to admire the gothic architecture and actually witness where Queen Elizabeth II and the Duchess of Cambridge walked down the aisle.
