Buckingham Palace (11/11)

Easily one of the most famous and arguably iconic palaces in the world, Buckingham Palace is the central hub of the British monarchy and has come to be a cultural icon of Great Britain both inside the country and abroad. Built initially as a townhouse for the Duke of Buckingham in 1703, the building was quickly acquired by King George III and was subsequently greatly expanded upon right up until the present day. Despite not being one of the oldest palaces in the country, Buckingham has still enjoyed a long and rich history with a particular highlight being the bomb that landed on it by a German air raid in the Second World War.
