At Horse Guards Arch, Changing the Guard takes place daily at 11.00 am (10.00 am on Sundays) and lasts about half an hour; it is normally held on Horse Guards Parade by the arch of Horse Guards Building. You can watch how twelve mounted troops in traditional costume arrive from their  Hyde Park  Barracks.

Trooping the Colours - Saturday 16 June 2012 - to mark the second of the Queen's two birthdays (this is the official one, her actual birthday is on 21st April), Trooping the Colour presents a vibrant display of ceremony and military history. Hundreds of well-disciplined soldiers in full dress uniform march past at the Horse Guards Parade, and a different Battalion gives the Royal Salute each year, all accompanied by stirring military music from the massed bands.  Start at 11 a.m., although tickets reguired you can see if free from the mall.
