changing of the guard

On my mom’s last day in London, she decided to head down to Buckingham Palace to watch the Changing of the Guard. Since Robert had never seen it and I haven’t been to a changing of the guard since I was still in high school, we decided to head down to Victoria Station together. We staked out a spot on the stairs and people watched as we waited for the sound of the band. The ceremony takes between 30-45 minutes, so be prepared to stand and check their website first as it only takes place on certain dates and is weather dependent.

Although it was fun to watch and read about the history of each regiment, I couldn’t help feeling like a cheesy tourist! I mean, the band even played the James Bond theme song for the crowd!
