Constantly guarded by troopers of the Household Cavalry
Horse Guards fronts Horse Guards Parade, the vast parade ground where the Queen takes the salute at the Trooping of The Colour ceremony on her official birthday. The building was designed by William Kent, the then Chief Architect to George II. Horse Guards is constantly guarded by troopers of the Household Cavalry. Two mounted cavalry troopers are posted outside daily from 10:00 to 16:00, and are relieved every hour.
The Queen's Life Guard are the mounted troopers of the Household Cavalry who guard the official entrance to St James's Palace and Buckingham Palace outside Horse Guards in Whitehall.
An incredible event so representative of British tradition!
The Guard Changing Ceremony takes place each weekday at 11:00 and at 10:00 on Sundays and is performed by The Queen's Life Guard.
