If you like this, here are some more events at Horse Guards Parade…
Changing the Guard, at Horse Guards – Every day Changing the Guard at Horse Guards is similar to the ceremony that takes place at Buckingham Palace, but takes place every day of the year and in all weathers. And seeing as it takes place just half-an-hour before the main event, you might like to catch both on the same day.
Dismounting Ceremony (or Four O’Clock Parade) – Every day The “Dismounting Ceremony” takes place in the small courtyard beyond the parade ground. The guards will be lined-up for inspection by a very vocal Officer, who will then order the horses be taken back to the stables for the night. The courtyard will then be guarded by dismounted sentries until morning, when the following day’s “Changing the Guard” will bring back the mounted sentries.
