An experience not to be missed ! If you are even slightly interested in pomp and ceremony, history and pageantry this is not to be missed. It is worth while applying for tickets early to have a chance in the ballot. Take a sun hat...More
This was an amazing experience not to be missed. To see the Royal family right in front of us was amazing and to be on the Mall when the flypass came was equally as good.
I hoe to return again next year.
We arrived at 6am-which is great because only a handful of people are there that early. We were able to pick out our 'spot'. By the time it started, there were millions of people everywhere. Unfortunately, we got a bit smashed against the metal guard...More
Unless you are willing to wait for over an hour for the next Changing of the Guard, you will have to stand behind a crowd of people, all holding up cameras in your way, so you will not actually be able to see anything except...More
The Colonel's Review is the final dress rehearsal the week before the Queen's Birthday Parade - also known as Trooping the Colour. It is much easier to get tickets for the two rehearsals but you will still need to buy your tickets at least a...More
I was invited by my ex regiment to attend Trooping the Colour for my 70th birthday. It was an event I will always remember. I was dressed in my veterans top and The Life Guards beret, As always the bands marched up and down the...More
Once we realized our London vacation overlapped with Trooping of the Colours, we rearranged our plans to attend and it was the highlight of our trip. Even my husband and teenagers who weren't that into it initially thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived around 8:45 and...More
When we planned our visit to England, my wife insisted we arrive in time to see Trooping the Colour, the annual "official" celebration of the Queen's birthday. We were unable to secure grandstand seats through the lottery, so we simply showed up along the Mall...More
We planned our trip to be there during the day of Trooping the Colour. We did apply to the lottery to purchase seated tickets at Horseguard but did not get them. Not a problem, we arrived out on the Mall around 9 AM and got...More
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
