Why locals recommend it
A visit to London’s most famous address is a must for any royals fan. You’ll visit the ballroom where state banquets are held and walk in the footsteps of HMQ leading 007 through the palace in the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony film. Picture yourself as a guest at William and Kate’s wedding, when Prince Harry turned the throne room into a disco. Buy a ticket for a curated garden tour. It’s the biggest private garden in London and very beautiful, with a 400-year-old tree and 30 bird species. The Queen keeps queen bees and makes her own honey. Get your ticket stamped by palace staff to go back for free for a year.

Park
“Hyde Park is one of my favourite places in the world. A gorgeous slice of nature right in the centre of London. Beautiful in any season and different every visit. Great for dog-spotting, wandering by the lakes or getting lost in the flowers. It's wonderful.”

Department Store
“If the shopping on Oxford Street, Regent Street and One New Change wasn’t quite enough for you, don’t worry, we have London’s most iconic shopping mall up next on the list! While the prices might not be for all pockets entry is free, and I personally always enjoy exploring the food hall of Harrods. The outside of the building is also beautiful and the perfect backdrop for Instagram photos. If you’re visiting under Christmas time they also add loads of lights to the facade, making it an even more Instagrammable shot.”
