Pass By: Buckingham Palace, Spur Road, London SW1A 1AA England

Buckingham Palace has served as the official London residence of the UK's sovereigns since 1837 and today is the administrative headquarters of the Monarch.

Pass By: St. James's Park, Horse Guards Road The Storeyard, London SW1A 2BJ England

St James’s Park includes The Mall and Horse Guards Parade, and is surrounded by landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Whitehall.

Stop At: Changing of the Guard, Constitution Hill Buckingham Palace, London SW1A 1AA England

The epitome of British pomp and military ceremony for which Britain is famous around the world. Elite soldiers from the military have been dutifully guarding the Monarch since 1660. The 7 regiments that guard the monarch, known as the 'Household Division', are so devoted to their duty that they will famously not acknowledge or allow themselves to be distracted by the public.

During the ceremony, immaculately turned out guards are accompanied by marching bands playing a rousing mix of military music, whose origins dates back to the morale-boosting songs played before the British military went into battle. If there is no changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, we will see the change of the Horse Guards at Horse Guards Parade.

Duration: 30 minutes
