Changing of the Guard, London: 40 reviews and 47 photos
The Trooping of the Colour occurs every year and is great example of traditional English pomp and pageantry. Although dating back to the 17th century, a tradition of British infantry regiments first performed during the reign of Charles II, it now marks the Queen's official birthday in June. The Queen and members of the Royal family attend in person to watch the regiments parade their colours in Horse Guards Parade.
If you're lucky enough to get close enough to watch it, its great fun and makes me feel proud to be British. Alternatively every year the BBC broadcasts the military parade live for all to see.
