Buckingham Palace Adventures

I was lucky enough to go to Buckingham Palace on the last day that it was open to the public before the Queen came back. The day that I went was also displaying many of her dresses as part of her 90th birthday celebrations.

We weren’t allowed to take pictures inside, but the rooms were breathtaking. the Royal Staircase was the most magical of them all.

There were paintings lining the walls, different sizes and frame types adding interest. They were all portraits of different important people, and the went all the way up to the arched ceiling which itself was engraved with beautiful angels.

I was also happy that it was sunny out when I went! Walking around the grounds behind Buckingham Palace with the sun shining was amazing. I didn’t want to leave!

Eventually I did, and made my way over to St. James Park which was right around the corner.

Did any of you get to do a tour of Buckingham Palace? What did you think? Please let me know!
