Horse Guards Through the Opera Window
Guarded by mounted soldiers, the Horse Guards is the home of the Troopers of the Household Cavalry. We missed the 11am daily Changing of the Guard ceremony, but the crowd remains. The ceremony is similar to the pomp of the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, although not as grand, but is very popular among tourists to London.

Horse Guards originally was the main entrance to Buckingham Palace, and royal processions travelling through Whitehall still pass under the arches of the building.
