Horse Guards Building | Tourope

If it fits our tour schedule, our guide will be very happy to take you to one of the best royal rituals in the city. Explore the official entrance to St James and Buckingham Palace since the Restoration of King Charles II in 1660.

Although Changing The Queen’s Lifeguard is not as well-known as Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace, smaller crowds and no railings between you and the men and horses make it ideal for those with younger children and those looking for some amazing pictures.

The ceremony lasts about half an hour, and the mounted sentries change every hour during the day until 4:00 pm when a dismounting ceremony takes place.
