Buckingham Palace and St.James's Parks

Buckingham Palace is the official London residence of the Brithish monarch. Located in the City of Westminster, the palace is a setting for state occasions and royal hospitality. It has been a rallying point for the British people at times of national rejoicing and crisis.Color del textoOriginally known as Buckingham House, the building which forms the core of today's palace was a large townhouse built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703 on a site which had been in private ownership for at least 150 years.

St. James's Park is a 23 hectare park in Westminster, central London, the oldest of the Royal park of London. The park lies at the southernmost tip of the St. James's park area, which was named after a leper hospital dedicated to St.James the Less.

St. James's Park is bounded by Buckingham Palace to the west, The mall and St. James's Palace to the North, Horse guards to the east, and Birdcage Walk to the south. The park has a small lake, St. James's Park Lake, with two islands, Duck Island, and West Island.
