St James' Palace Tours

Built in the 16th century as a hunting lodge for Henry III, St James' Palace is one of London’s oldest official royal residences, playing host to iconic royals such as Anne Boleyn and Princess Diana over the years. The striking Tudor palace is unmistakable, with its bold, red-brick façade and castle-like gatehouse, and continues to house members of the royal family and host formal functions.

Although the interior is never open to the public, St James’ Palace remains a popular destination for walking tours, just a short walk from Buckingham Palace and looking out over St James Park. It's also notable as the starting point of the famous Changing of the Guards ceremony, with the Queen’s Guard lining up outside before marching down The Mall to Buckingham Palace.

Practical Info

St James’s Palace is located on The Mall in central London and the nearest London underground station is Green Park. The palace is not open to the public.
