CHANGING the GUARD at BUCKINGHAM PALACE

CHANGING the GUARD at BUCKINGHAM PALACE

"They're changing guard at Buckingham Palace - Christopher Robin went down with Alice".  (A A Milne).

This is the ceremony when the old guard hands over responsibility for protecting Buckingham and St James's Palaces to the new guard. It normally takes place at 1130 hours, pretty much daily from April to July and on alternate days from August to March. BUT - check first and bear in mind that arrangements are subject to alteration, often without notice. It is free to attend and it is one of the most popular events in London - so get there early. The best place to see it is in front of Buckingham Palace, by the Victoria Memorial.
