Oh come on.... It's just one of those things to see since your already there.
Suck it up Mate!!
Make sure to time it right to see Horse Guards Parade and Changing of the Guards.
Wouldn't have minded to hop on one of those pretty little horsees for a ride!
Oh how all of this "Prim and Proper -ness - Precise and Formal " leads you to a great bar down the street!

It was pretty to cool to visit this site because of the historical and royal value it holds. I didn’t take a tour or anything, just walked around it. There was a parade going on when we were there and we thought we were going to see the queen...no such luck. The royal guards were fun to watch though, good spot for photos.
