One of my favourite touristy things about London is observing the HORSE GUARDS' PARADE. I love the colourful tunics, especially the red ones and the cool headgear, but most of all I love the majestic horses.
Horse Guards is the traditional entrance to the Royal Palace and is still guarded by mounted sentries from the Queen's Cavalry. The Guard Changing Ceremony takes place weekdays at 11:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Sundays. It is at this time that twelve mounted troops in traditional costume arrive from their Hyde Park Barracks.

Address: Horse Guards
Directions: Nearest Tube, Charing Cross. At Horse Guard Ave.
