Do they give out maps to guests so they can find their way around? :)

The detail on the grand staircase is just magnificent. I love the Music Room, the interior colors and design give a romantic look.

buckingham palace isn't really that huge but it looks bigger on t.v. though. it pales into comparison with the spanish royal palace.

No, I don't recall getting a map of Buckingham when I was there this summer, but you can buy a guidebook in the gift shop that has a map with details about the palace, I think.

Photos of Buck House?

Hi all.. I'm looking for a very specific photo of Buckingham Palace: the North Front. All the photos I can find are either the East Front (from the Mall) or the Garden Facade. Anyone?

I once read something that really surprised me about Buckingham Palace, perhaps someone knows more about this. Much of the ornamentation on the front of the Palace is a "recent" addition and much of it was made of a kind of imitation stone called Coade Stone invented by a man called Coade who left the "recipe" to his wife and daughters at his death. They continued the business for some time and then when they died the recipe was lost forever. And no one has been able to make it since then. Has anyone heard of this?

I believe some of the ornamentation was added but I had no idea about Coade Stone, so I looked it up and found this
it appears it was invented by Mrs Coade! On this page it confirms that Coade Stone was used at BP.

A hapless Buckingham Palace footman caused 60,000 worth of damage to a new carpet when he spilled a trolley of drinks.

The Queen will be urged to open Buckingham Palace to the public more often in return for millions more pounds from the government to to pay for a backlog of repairs.

In this video they actually show the queen herself receiving one of her guests and conducting a state banquet. Very interesting.

who lives at Buckingham Palace who has apartments there, and where in Buckingham Palace wings do they live....
I believe that Princes Andrew and Edward and Princess Anne all have small apartments in Buckingham Palace. Princess Alexandra has a small place in St. James Palace. Prince Charles does not since he is so close to Clarence House. Prince Edward, Michael, and Richard alll have their homes in Kensington Palace.
Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth sleep there 4 nights a week, and the other 3 are spent at Windsor (when they are in London).
