10. Buckingham Palace
This amazing building is the residence of the British monarch. Located in the heart of London it is easily one of London’s most recognisable buildings.
It is also the headquarters of royal affairs of state. It has a strange and surprising history. The staterooms are less than 200 years old. Every room is filled with clues to kings past.
The architecture was designed when Britain was the richest and most powerful nation on the planet and originally it was a royal retreat. Henry VIII loved the land so much he made it a private hunting and deer park.
