Horse Guards Parade
The Horse Guards Parade is the second most popular ceremony next to the Changing of the Guard . In fact, the two mounted cavalry regiments of the Queens Household Regiments, who march in the Changing of the Guard, make up the Horse Guards Parade. The parade commences at 11:30a every day in the summertime, and every other day during the winter. It takes place outside the Horse Guards Building on Whitehall, which was built in 1745 to house the old palace guards. The Horse Guards Building is also the setting for Trooping the Colour .
The Changing of the Guards at the Horse Guards Parade is very colorful, impressive and not to be missed. This happens daily in the summer/spring and every other day in the fall and winter. Watch them ride from St. James Park into the parade grounds where the ceremony is held. Before or after the ceremony have your photo taken with the mounted guard in front of the building.
