We thought we should watch the changing of the guard at least once. Man were we not alone. It was not all that impressive, but we did not regret checking it out.
Everyone loves a parade. And I mean everyone. Just one small shot of the crowds watching the changing of the guard.
Buckingham Palace. The guard circus takes place in front of the palace.

The Tower bridge at night. Click HERE for a panorama of the scene (211k).
