A long ceremony which I just happened to stumble upon walking from Trafalgar Square and down The Mall. I had read that you would not be able to see the entire ceremony because there are actually several components. But by pure dumb luck I just happened to move the correct location and saw most of it (except for what happens inside the palace - between the front of the building and the gate). Just when you think the ceremony is over another section begins. Lots of fun and one of the things you want to see the British do. After all, they do pomp very, very well.
