Horse Guards Parade
Formerly the headquarters of the British Army, the historic Horse Guards Parade is now a popular site for ceremonies and parades. Being the political hub of the United Kingdom, Horse Guards Parade lies across the way from Buckingham Palace. A number of monuments can be seen along the edges of the grounds paying homage to the military. The London Polo Championships were held here in 2009, and it was chosen as the site for the Beach Volleyball championships of the London 2012 Olympic Games. This historic area is not to be missed on your next trip London! Call ahead for more details.
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.
