DESCRIPTION

Buckingham Palace is one of the most readily recognised buildings in the world and one of the few working royal palaces remaining.

It contains an introduction to the Palace today; a history of the building and architecture of the Palace; fascinating stories about the Palace's occupants, from George III to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II; a visitor's map of the State Rooms and an illustrated tour of the State Rooms and their contents.
