Ever wondered what it’s really like to live like royals? If you’re royally obsessed like us, then that’s something you’ve asked yourself hundreds of times. Ah, to sip tea (or a gin and Dubonnet) with Queen Elizabeth in the white drawing room.
Sure, tours of Buckingham Palace (virtual or in-person) offer a glimpse into the regal estate, but they only show you a small portion of Queen E's not-so-humble abode. This enormous, instantly recognizable building has served as the official London residence of the U.K.’s sovereigns since 1837, yet we’ve seen so little of it. Lucky for us, HomeAdvisor decided to create a complete floor plan, illustrations and all, of the 775-room building (yes, you read that correctly) broken up into three sections, the Central Block, Queen's Apartments and the East Front.
To do this, the company used pre-existing floor plans, research and already existing interior images. It even worked with architect Jelena Popovic, who previously helped create floor plans for each section of the palace.
So, shall we explore?
