Buses in the Ballroom

The Ballroom at Buckingham Palace

This huge room in Buckingham Palace was originally built to host dances – known as balls – and concerts. Today the Ballroom is used for large ceremonial events, such as State Banquets and investitures (where people are awarded honours including medals for bravery or service to their community).
