    The Changing of the Guard is a tradition that is centuries old. The Guard Change is a ceremony which is led by real, front-line soldiers from the British Army.

Visitors will be able to enjoy spectating the ceremony at Horse Guards Parade situated just off Whitehall in Central London.

    I thought this was a continuous tour. However, it is a two part tour put together. Both tour guides were awesome.
