The Household cavalry
Her Majesty the Queens mounted bodyguards. Picture taken outside Buckingham palace unusually in the snow.
The changing of the guard is a major tourist attraction and takes place every day come sun, wind, rain or snow at 11.15 am. The mounted guards are accompanied by a detachment of foot guards from either The Welsh Guards, The Irish Guards, The Scots Guards or the The Grenadier Guards along with the guards band.
Located in the heart of the west end of London’s theatre and nightlife is the ancient market place of Covent Garden. Once the largest fruit and vegetable market in England now the only fruit you’ll find on sale is in the Apple electronics store located with the square. Covent Garden is a wonderful hustle bustle of shops, pubs, music, market and street performers. Well worth a visit by day or by night.
