Bert’s next adventure
Is to a royal estate
It’s Buckingham Palace!
He just can’t wait!

Photos aren't allowed inside

Photos aren’t allowed inside

As an active, working palace
Photos aren’t allowed inside
It’s against the rules
So Bert will abide

As the royal family’s residence
This is where they reside
But you can still visit
And take photos on the outside

Buckingham Palace
Is the place for royal hospitality
And the center of state occasions
For any & all nationality

The Royal Family live & work here

It's an active palace - still used every day

An incredible building

An incredible building

It was built as a townhouse
Of a large degree
For the Duke of Buckingham
In 1703

In 1761
Ownership changed hands
When King George III
Purchased all the lands

Bought for Queen Charlotte
The Palace became known
As “The Queen’s House”
Its where she had her throne

In 1837
It became officially
The palace of the British monarch
With Queen Victoria, initially

You can tour the Royal Mews
Without any delays
But the State Rooms
Are only open certain days

To get tickets in advance
It’s a limited entry
So do not miss your chance!

Also arrive early
To see an amazing sight
It’s the Changing of the Guard
And it’s a pure delight!!

Lots of tourists
