London Hit List # 19 The Changing of the Guards
The Changing of the Guards is a ceremony that takes place every other day in front of Buckingham Palace. The name describes it quite well – it is the new guard changing places with the old one. I recommend that if you intend to go see the Changing of the Guards, you (unlike me) should arrive quite early, otherwise it will be very difficult to see the actual ceremony and all you will see will be the crowds of tourists, but don’t worry if you don’t – you will probably be able to get a spot to see the new guard march down the Mall.
