England

Did you know that there is a palace in the world, that has its own ATM machine? Not only that, it also has a post office, a cafeteria, a movie theatre and 78 bathrooms.
 
Amazing, right?
 
Queen Elizabeth’s home is like a town! Equipped with a chapel, a post office, a staff cafeteria, a doctor’s office (outfitted for surgical procedures) and a movie theater, it doesn’t seem like the royals ever have to leave. The palace also has an indoor swimming pool, of course. The pool house is said to be seen to the left in the photo of the back of Buckingham.
 
The Palace has its own ATM
Cash money! In 2001, now-former head of Coutts bank, Gordon Pell, confirmed to The Standard that there is indeed an ATM inside Buckingham Palace. It is tucked away in the Palace basement and reserved for the royal family.
 
The Queen’s corgis have free reign of the place
Who let the dogs out? In Brian Hoey’s 2011 tell-all book Not In Front of the Corgis, a royal footman told the author that Queen Elizabeth’s beloved canines “are allowed unrestricted access to any part of any royal residence; nowhere is off-limits.” As they’re not completely house-trained, the pups sometimes relieve themselves inside the Palace and footmen have to clean up after them.
 
Most massive garden in all of London
A British quiz show in the vein of Jeopardy! touts that the Palace is home to the largest private garden in all of London. The well-manicured greenery encompasses 40 acres – four times the size of Wembley Stadiums, where major soccer matches (and the occasional football game) take place.
 
It has an underground tunnel system
While there is no secret underground Tube station, as many have speculated, the Palace does have secret tunnels that connect it to Clarence House and the House of Parliament.
