In addition to being the home of Queen Elizabeth II, the residence is also in one of the world's most expensive cities. Half a billion does get you a lot, though, including 775 rooms, 52 of which are bedrooms for the royal family and their guests. There is an additional 188 bedrooms for employees, 78 bathrooms and 92 offices in Buckingham Palace.
Since the royal family is often hosting countless events, the palace also has 19 staterooms, including a dining room, music room and throne room. Experts consider the addition of the ballroom that celebrated the end of the Crimean War in 1856 to be a recent upgrade. Outside of the grand spaces, 40 acres make up the palace's gardens.
