Craig’ London blog> Craig’s Hyde Park review  I’ve written a review and posted some photos on my blog

There will be a 41-gun salute in Hyde Park to mark the anniversary of the Queen's Coronation in 1953.

It will be fired by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery (KTRHA), and take place in the north-eastern corner of the park, a short distance from Speaker's Corner.

This year marks the Queen's 64th year on the throne... so she's already overtaken Queen Victoria's record of 63 years and 216 days.

How long do you think she'll be able to go? She's only 91 years old this year, so hopefully for many more years yet -- especially when you remember that the Queen Mother didn't finally pass away until she was 245.

There are quite a few military parades taking place this month, so you might also like to check out our calendar of military events and list of parades in London.

 Guest – “Dear LondonDrum Admin, Thanks a lot for the help in the chat forum for gun salute last 21 April 2017 (couldn't go back to that page, had to drop words here) , the gun firing was unexpectedly LOUD! the firing is very on time at 12noon, we went earlier to take many photos with the horses and the uniform soldiers! the horses are awesomely strong! then we grab a good spot nearest to the firing to experience the impact. to say the truth, i am not disappointed, each "POW" was amazing!!!! Just wanna drop by and say Thank you for londondrum admin, and highly recommend to go any gun salute event. I personally prefer the Hyde park for the horses!”

Admin – “They are definitely loud, you are not wrong about that. The first time I heard one I was going down piccadilly on the bus (it was in green park) and it almost made me jump out of my seat. It scared the bejesus out of me because I wasn't expecting it!Glad you enjoyed it”
