"Changing the guard." Ceremonial London Tip by JulesH
Ceremonial London, London: 53 reviews and 55 photos
Favorite thing: This particular change took place at Horseguards Parade but there is also a change at Buckingham Palace, WIndsor Castle and The Tower of London. It is basically a shift change for the Queens Guard and takes place to the pomp and ceremony of a marching band. In the summer, the guard changes daily at around 11am. Check the following website for times: http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/Page378.asp
Fondest memory: Trying to make a member of the Queens Guard move or laugh when I was a child. It's part of their training that they have to stay as still as a statue while on sentry duty!
