  • We arrived at the entrance at 5:13 iPhone time knowing that the latest admission is 5:15. Then we were told by one of the receptionist that it's already past 5:15 and we were late for the admission and the time on our phone is a mistake. The ironic thing is that one minute after we went out disappointed, we heard the bell of the very building they are in rang the 5:15. Finally we got into but the other receptionist said because there's not enough time for us to finish the audio guide so we couldn't have one. Again we got the audio guide which we deserve. So as a conclusion we showed up at the right time and place but were rejected twice for different ridiculous reason.
  • Those who are in army will definitely enjoy. But interesting for all.
  • Fabulous and attractive place to visit...but too expensive
  • The courtyard itself is well worth a look in (since it's free), even if you're not a tourist. The horses and guardsmen are all really friendly. If you encounter a member of the Household Cavalry while they're not on official duty (such as if you're lucky to be there on a social/promotional event), then they are all really splendid, genuine, heartwarming, and friendly people. This is the unit that form the guards in front of Buckingham Palace, so the people that do this job are happy to talk about how it works, what they do, etc etc. There is a museum on site giving the history of the unit in general as well as outlining it's modern day duties. Well worth a visit.
