Hi, I'd like to see the changing of the guards but I'm going with a little toddler and I'll have my stroller with me. I don't mind not seeing the actual changing of the guards, but I'd like to have a nice view where my little one can actually see some guards and horses marching by. Is there a good spot? Or should I just scrap that off my list? Thanks =D
Can I go to the Buckingham Palace to watch the changing of the guards on my own? Or joining a tour is recommendable?
I know that in order to get good viewing position I must go there early, perhaps, 2-3 hours before the starting of the ceremony. Are tours given certain privilage to have positions reserved so that tour members could still have better viewing positions even arriving just half an hour before the ceremony?
I am confused about the directions to best see the horses. Some people mention them coming through the Wellington Arch at Hyde Park, and others say they come from the Horse Guard and that you can see them from the Horse Guard Museum. Are there two groups of horses? Thank you SO much!
Will the guards changing ceremony take place every day? We are looking at visiting on 7th May.
So am I right to say that we should arrive before 10.30am to get a good spot in seeing the entire ceremony? Or is there any good spot where we can "park" ourselves there?
