Changing of the Guard London

The Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace takes place in the mornings when The King’s Guards hand over responsibility for protecting Buckingham Palace and St James’ Palace to new guards. The ceremony takes approximately 45-minutes and is a unique experience for visitors. With music and marches, this is a significant Royal tradition that truly captures the essence of British culture.

The schedule of this ceremony depends on the season and weather, so there is no guarantee that you will be able to see the guard change at Buckingham Palace on the day of your tour. If there is no ceremony on your selected tour, the guide will take you to the Horse Guards for a photo stop instead.
