It is always at 11.30am, daily from May - July and alternate days for the rest of the year.

Dates for the rest of this year here:

The journeyplanner here will give you timings from your exact location in Bayswater:

http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/user

It's a simple journey by Tube + foot (no Tube station by the Place). Circle Line from Bayswater to St James Park, then 10-15 mins walk. Allow at least 40 minutes in total, and more if you want to get a good spot (others watch as well).

The bus number 148 leaves from near Queensway Tube station on Bayswater Road (opposite Hyde Park) and travels along Bayswater Road before going down Park Lane and then Grosvenor Place (longside the wall at the rear of Buckingham Palace gardens) before meeting Buckingham Palace Road near the Royal Mews and the Royal Westminster Hotel. The stop is called Buckingham Palace. If you go into Victoria Station then you have gone a stop or two too far.
You can also see more from a bus. The journey time is about 20 minutes.

Travel Tips for London

Weather

by teresopinha

London has many things to see... I have only been there for 3 days and I didn't had much time to see everything...
But if you're considering to go to london...you must take an umbrella!!!
Beside that I really appreciate the streets, the shops, the buildings. My best memory of london is the movement, the life that the city has!
This is what I miss the most about the city!

World premiere

by socrates_07

Now I am not sure anymore if it was the world premiere or just the premiere in England of the movie "The Lord of the Kings - The Return of the King".
It was a coincidence to get there (at Leicester Square) and to see all those people waiting to get a glimpse of one of the movie stars .
First we waited for a while, too, then we decided to come back later to see one of those actors. Some hours later we came back but it was much more crowded. And no chance to see any "famous face".

The Eye of London

by iandsmith

Such a mixture. History, modern, run-down, glorious. All these things come to mind when walking the streets of London. This view is of Lambeth Bridge, next one down from Westminster Bridge and looks over to the south side of the Thames where the mobile viewing platform called "The Eye of London" is far and away the most prominent feature.
It travels slowly to give riders the chance to use their cameras to great advantage.
Just check the weather before you board!

Jaywalking - Survival of the Fastest

by kit_mc

In some places, the US and Singapore for example, it's normal for pedestrians to wait at traffic lights until the little man goes green and then cross the road. Crossing on red is illegal and referred to as jaywalking. Jaywalking isn't really a concept that we have in the UK, in the sense that it's normal and legal to cross the road wherever is safe and convenient. Well, at least where it's convenient...

In London in particular I'd say it's fairly much obligatory to cross whenever there's a gap in traffic long enough for you to make a mad dash with about a 50/50 chance that you might survive the attempt. It's up there with complaining about the tube and having an under used gym membership, in the list of things Londoners do.

Jaywalking as a cultural obligation was underlined for me one evening on the way back from the gym, crossing the rather manic Marylebone Road to get to Baker Street tube, because the ruddy Metropolitan Line was closed so I'd had to catch a bus, when a break in traffic led to a mass of people crossing against a glaringly red light, including two policemen. I'm always stuck for what to do in other countries, I mean are people just being polite or law-abiding? The whole idea that it's illegal to cross a road wherever you damn well want is a notion that just wouldn't go down well in London. To be honest, if it was legal to physically clamber over cars in the bid to get to the other side of the road, we probably would. Come to think of it, that actually is what happens at the corner of Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road on a Saturday night...

I hear in fact that in some towns, even in the UK, it's common for people to wait for lights to change to green before crossing even when it's legal to cross at random with complete disregard to one's own safety. How quaint...

by Liz10052

1) most people providing a service in London do not expect a tip. So, at restaurants they probably won't expect one, but I always think a small one won't hurt, and since I'm American, old habits die hard I guess :-) I think its especially important to tip people who help you with your bags, and they'll probably expect one more than say a waiter at a restaurant.
2) try to have your Tube ticket ready when you get to the turnstiles to get in or out of a station. I remember so many times dozens of people getting off the train and trying to leave the station, only to be held up by someone (usually a tourist) digging through their bags trying to find their ticket. Just remember that most people using the Underground try to get in and out as fast as possible, and aren't too happy about being held up. If you need some time to get your bags, clothes, kids, etc straightened out, remember to stand near a wall and do it, away from the flow of people.
3) Be polite to people, and this may sound strange, but don't talk too loud. The British have more than a few negative opinions about Americans, and one of them is that Americans come here, speak loud, and generally think they own the place. Now, as an American I know this isn't true of every one of us, and i always try to disprove their myths about Americans, but occasionally I'll hear a group of American tourists and I wince. I think one of the best things to do when in a foreign country is to act as the locals do - observe the situation and act accordingly. Don't worry - Londoners do know how to have a laugh.
