"Toy Soldiers On Parade At Buckingham Palace" Buckingham Palace by Confucius

Buckingham Palace Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 46 photos

Theme From "Nutcracker Suite"

"La La La La
lalala... lalala... lala lala la!"

(Put this song inside your head when you get there!)

Left, right, left, right, left, right, left...

This is the moment everybody under the sun is waiting for; the traditional changing of the guard ceremony. Meanwhile the palace guards are all waiting for a different moment, when they can get out of the sun and unceremoniously change their clothes!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:You'll get a sense of royalty once you get within the palace grounds
  • Cons:You'll be surrounded by crowds of wacky tacky budget tourists outside the gates
  • In a nutshell:Expect to see the Nutcracker march and Royal Mews, don't expect to see the royal family
