Located in the City of Westminster, Buckingham Palace is the official residence of the Queen and the location of the obligatory changing of the guard “show” making it at least a necessary walk-by site. We recommend you to get there early to watch the changing of the guard as the crowds fill the square in front of the gates and you really don’t want to get into any trouble with the police for climbing the Memorial Statue of Queen Victoria just for a better view.

Established in 1753, the British Museum is considered to be one of the world’s greatest museums and has the largest collection (approx. 8 million objects) of human history and culture. We all know how hard it is to find a free deal in Europe, so you’ll be lucky to head over to the British Museum which is open every day and is absolutely free. If nothing else peaks your curiosity, visiting the Mummy of ‘Ginger’ which dates to about 3300 BC is something to brag about.
