There will be a 41-gun salute in Green 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 usually takes place near the northern edge of the park, a short distance from Constitution Hill.

This year marks the Queen's 66th 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 93 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.

Craig’s review of Green Park – “Green Park is just green grass and trees. There are no flowers, no rivers, no ponds, no lakes, no buildings, no little kids playgrounds, just a couple of hot dog burger stands and military monuments.

Craig’s review of Ceremony of the Keys One of the best things about going to the Ceremony of the Keys is that you get to see a little bit of London at night. It starts at half-past nine, but if you take the tube to Tower Hill five minutes beforehand then you really are missing out on a treat. So take a tip from m… continued
