Watch the Changing of the Guard ceremony – London


Going to London and not jostling in front of Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard is not a complete experience!
And this is also a free program, just arrive and wait for the guards.

Another less popular option, but also very interesting and free, is changing the mounted guard at Horse Guards Parade in St James’s Park. The changing of the mounted guard takes place daily at 11:00 am and on Sundays at 10:00 am.

If changing the guard isn’t your thing, check out the Tower of London’s Locking Ceremony, the Ceremony of the Keys. It happens every night and to attend it you need to request tickets well in advance. But it’s totally free.
