The iconic Buckingham Palace is the official London residence of the Queen of England and is a site rich in history. While the palace is still very much in use, its state rooms are opened to public visitors at certain times during the year and offers a unique insight into a truly royal residence. Buckingham Palace is used as a venue to host royal ceremonies and visits from other heads of state and is also home to a wide range of antique and often priceless art pieces and furniture that make up what is known as the Royal Collection. Those visiting the English capital and looking for London hotels can choose one of the properties offered by Millennium & Copthorne Hotels UK. This premier hotel chain also has many other UK hotels spread across key destinations and cities around England.
