    I saw this from several different angles the best coming as I passed by along the Thames River. Big Ben is just an awesome site that everyone should see one time!!

    Guardhouse is home to the Household Division. Two mounted horsemen are on guard duty from 10AM until 4PM every day with a changeover every hour.

    I do admire these people for their discipline. I cannot stand still for a minute. How do they do it?

    Nobody knows what these guys are guarding there, but for the classical tourist picture you have to go there.

    The changing of the guard is a 'must see' one time in your life. Its heritage laden militaristic tradition at its best. I love the uni's and the pomp and circumstance.

    Of course the changing of the guard. English guard changing ceremony was the biggest one I've ever seen in other European countries.

    I wish I could have seen it but when we were there the city was experiencing a huge protest and so the changing of the guards was cancelled.
