  Changing of the Guards
by glennkasner

Nothing can quite describe the feeling one gets when the bands and guards march up to Buckingham Palace for the changing of the guards.

The changing of the guard takes place at 11:30 from May to August but from Sept to April it only happens on alternate days.

It is a bit of atourist trap - get there early.
After watching the ceremony go to the Royal Mews behind the Palace - well worth a visit!
