This paradeground is the scene of the world famous Trooping the Colour, which since 1748 has marked the monarch’s birthday. The march past of the Household Division involves almost 400 musicians.
Notice the clock that crowns the main building? You'll see a black mark next to the number '2'. That's the hour at which Charles I was beheaded at the neighbouring Banqueting House.
The first Beach Volleyball circuit began in the 1950s with hundreds of athletes playing on beaches in California. A volleyball weighs between 260g and 280g and is made of synthetic leather.
Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh will look to hold court here and recapture their Beach Volleyball gold.
A temporary arena will be built here in 2012 for Beach Volleyball - with sand brought in to create London’s very own 'beach’.
Lovely London setting
It was originally the official entrance to Buckingham Palace. Horse Guards was once a full Army garrison and is said to be haunted.
Wonderful great place
Free to watch
There's a horse-changing ceremony at 11. They march in, play the trumpet, and stare at each other for at least 15 minutes. Then we left.
Nice place to visit!
You absolutely must take a picture with Guards :)
Catch both blue and red regiments
See guard change over a half-hour starting 11-ish.
wonderful photo opp to see.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG ceremony but worth it.
At the 2012 London Olympics, the Horse Guards Parade became a focal point around the world, and the biggest stars in beach volleyball and volleyball made their mark in history.
The walk around the back of Downing St. and on towards Buckingham Palace is very nice. But only if the gates are open. On this day, they were closed to the public.
Horses may kick or bite :)
