  • Have seen Horse Guards Parade ground on so many occasions on TV but rarely been there. I'm sure millions around the world are familiar with it, through Trooping the Color and even the beach volleyball...  more »
  • Somewhere quieter and less well known than Buckingham Palace but he will need to arm yourself with patience to see the entire ceremony because no statement by foot from here. Horses are beautiful and the procurement orders and instructions very impressive! See the adjacent Museum.
