three floors of this building where you can have some drinks and food. Isn’t this the best place to

Watch the changing of the guard
The changing of the guard is probably one of the best ceremonies you can attend in the city. It is
held every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday at Buckingham palace exactly at 11 am. In
this ceremony, the guards serving at the Buckingham palace hand over their responsibilities to
the new guard in a proper traditional manner by holding a march in which all the guards are
dressed up in red tunics and bearskin hat. They stomp around the palace with pleasantry music in
the background. This whole thing is pretty entertaining to watch, which you can do for free. Just
make sure to arrive a little early as it gets really crowded when the ceremony starts.
