Buckingham Palace London
Buckingham Palace is the primary residence of the British monarch.
Originally a grand house, remodelling began in 1762 by Scottish architect William Chambers (though born in Gothenburg, Sweden).
King George IV decided to modify Buckingham House into a palace around 1820 using the famous English architect John Nash who planned the grand Regent Street not far to the north.
The building has been remodelled many times since, more details towards the base of this page.
