"Horse Guards" Horse Guards Parade Tip by eviltooth

Horse Guards Parade, London: 73 reviews and 140 photos


Though not as popular as the changing of guard at Buckingham Palace, I prefer the Mounted Guard Changing Ceremony, simply because I love horses. :p It can, however, get a bit eeky with the horses' poopoo around.

It takes place daily Mon-Sat 11:00am; Sun 10:00am.

Decided to put a pic of the "non-mounted guard" (dunno what they are called) here because it's more interesting. I thought they aren't supposed to be distracted by other people but this guard was looking at the 2 Japanese grannies laughing and taking his pic. I guess I wasn't attractive enough :( he didn't look my way. :p When he turned around he'd his eyes half-closed and was looking at the ground! Ask me if you want to see the pic.
