I think we were somewhat lucky, the Guards were out practicing for the following weekends Trooping the Colour, we caught the band and troops marching up the Mall, very smart and very proud. It has to be said the tourists loved it, so top marks to the boys.
The Mall is a road in the City of Westminster, central London, between Buckingham Palace at its western end and Trafalgar Square via Admiralty Arch to the east. Before it terminates at Whitehall it is met by Horse Guards Road and Spring Gardens. It is closed to traffic on Sundays, public holidays and on ceremonial occasions.
Here are some pictures that I took during the weekend
