What to expect

During your visit to London, Buckingham Palace is a must-see. Accompanied by a local guide, you will have the opportunity to see the changing of the royal guard in front of the palace doors.

This is a world-famous spectacle that you will not be able to see anywhere else. Changing of the Guards is definitely something that should be experienced when visiting London. Your guide will explain how the Changing of the Guard, also known as Guard Mounting, has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in London.

You will see how the soldiers in place are “relieved” of their position in a very particular way while accompanied by a military fanfare. The soldiers have protected the King or Queen of England since the reign of Henry VII, who established the Royal Body Guard as a permanent institution. The tradition has continued for more than 500 years.

All of the guards are dressed in a traditional red tunic and an easily recognizable bearskin helmet. The music that accompanies the changing of the guard can be either military or more contemporary. It is definitely an attraction that is not to be missed.
