Not only apartments of ordinary inhabitants of the planet but also the residence of kings need repair. Dwelling-place of the British royal family, Buckingham Palace, needs reconstruction. The official residence of Queen Elizabeth II in London requires urgent repair.
Almost half a billion dollars will be allocated for the reconstruction of Buckingham Palace. This sum seems to be huge only at first sight. But it is necessary to take into account that the building’s area is more than 70,000 square meters. There are 853 rooms for various purposes in the palace.
Furthermore, the entire heating system will be replaced during the reconstruction of the royal residence. Also, close attention will be paid to the electrical wiring of the castle. Last time these communications have been modernized over 30 years ago.
It is expected that the planned reconstruction of the Royal House will extend its exploitation for another half century.
Queen Elizabeth has no intention to leave the castle at the time of the construction works.
Buckingham Palace is not only the residence of the British monarchs. It is also one of the most visited attractions in London. Every year millions of tourists come to the capital of Great Britain to see the place of the Queen’s dwelling. Also, sightseeing tours traditionally include a visit to Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London, British Museum, Big Ben, the museum of Madame Tussauds.
