The Changing of the Guard is a tradition that is centuries old. The Guard Change is a ceremony which is led by real, front-line soldiers from the British Army. Throughout your tour, you will stroll past St. James’s Palace; the most senior royal palace in the United Kingdom. You will march alongside the soldiers en-route to Buckingham Palace, before securing the best views in the house. The Changing of the Guard does not take place outside Buckingham Palace, which is usually Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Visitors will be able to enjoy spectating the ceremony at Horse Guards Parade situated just off Whitehall in Central London. Later, you can enjoy a meal of either lunch or dinner at the London Hard Rock Cafe, with VIP skip-the-line access to the next available table. You are also able to upgrade your tour to include a 24-hour hop-on/hop-off double-decker bus tour.
