During your visit to London, Buckingham Palace changing Guards is a must-see. Accompanied by a local guide, you will have the opportunity to see the changing of the Royal Guard in front of the Palace doors. This is a world-famous spectacle that you will not be able to see anywhere else!
Buckingham Palace Changing Guards is something that should be experienced when visiting London. It is spectacular and amazing, the pure synchronization of it blows away your mind every single time. The show is impressive as the band forms a circle in the center of the Buckingham Palace forecourt and plays a selection of music. This kind of atmosphere is always exciting.
All the guards are dressed in a traditional red tunic and an easily recognizable bearskin helmet. The music that accompanies the changing of the guard can be either military or more contemporary.
Our guide knows right where to take you to get a good view and watch the band plays. The guide knows also when and where to move so you will be able to watch them march. You will see how the soldiers in place are “relieved” of their position in a very particular way while accompanied by a military fanfare. The soldiers have protected the King or Queen of England since the reign of Henry VII, who established the Royal Body Guard as a permanent institution. The tradition has continued for more than 500 years.
It is an attraction that is not to be missed.
Know before you go:
|Dates and Times can change, sometimes at short notice, when the Guards are required for operational or other ceremonial duties, and as a result of road closures.|
