Things to do in St James Park area

If you are interested in London history and the Royal Family, then you can head west to see Buckingham Palace and the Victoria Memorial. The sculpture that is dedicated to Queen Victoria is located opposite Buckingham Palace and it is one of the greatest things to see in London. Buckingham Palace cannot be missed! The London landmark is the place where British locals gather during national events for example, thousands of people visited the palace at the time of Princess Diana’s death and the birth of the royal baby in 2013. When you visit Buckingham Palace make sure to check if the Royal Standard flag flies – this means that the Queen is home. The palace is one of London’s top attractions and we highly recommend to go and see it, especially during the changing of the guard’s ceremony. Make sure to check the schedule to see if the event is taking place.

There’s plenty more things to do around the St James Park, like visiting Trafalgar Square. Trafalgar Square is surrounded by statues of lions, very popular for selfies and other pictures. The square is the place for London’s greatest events and festivals including the fabulous New Year’s Eve countdown or the Diwali Festival.
