London Olympics 2012: Top Royal Spots In London (PHOTOS)

We've written lots about London this past week--our favorite canal walk (in Regent's Park), climbing the O2 arena and the city's most stylish hotels. Earlier this week we even checked out the best of London's blue plaques.

Now, for even more fun in the city on the Thames, we're back with must-see royal spots in London. Sure, any trip across the pond isn't complete without a view of Buckingham Palace, but there's more to the Royals than this one abode.

Ever heard of the Banqueting House? How about Kew Palace? They may not get top billing, but they are not to be missed.

Thanks again to our friends at DK Publishing, here are the top 10 picks for royal spots in London. And, for even more to-dos in the city, check out DK Eyewitness Travel's "Top 10 London."
