If you are lucky enough to visit during the 10 weeks in late July - September when the Queen is in Scotland, definitely go to see the State Rooms at the Palace. Otherwise it's the obligatory trip to the Changing of the Guards. Do visit one of the official Palace gift shops dotted around the vicinity. Great presents for people back home or a lovely keepsake from your visit.
