"Change of Guards @ Buckingham Palace" Buckingham Palace Tip by backpackerbaby

  Change of guards - my all the time favorite !
by backpackerbaby

It's definitely a show for tourists but it never reduces my enthusiasm in watching the change of guards.

It's my third time watching the 'show' and this time I could find a good position. I was really impressed, not because of the music they played but by the design of the uniforms the guards wore.... so fabulous! Of course, I was more interested in the 'Marge Simpson's hair styled' hat. : P

The 'show' is performed daily in summer but every even day (Tues/Thur/Sat) in Winter at 11:00 a.m. It's advisable to go there at least 0.5 hour early to find the best angle of view.
