The event is held the 2nd Saturday in June. We arrived at 8:00 a.m.; mind you, events don't start until about 10:00. Yet it was worth the wait. We stood right by the circle at Buckingham Palace in front of the statue of Victoria. We...More

I was able to see the Parade and the whole Royal family, which was so cool. The Parade happens once a year, in the beginning of June.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just

Yes. Its the same road to and from. The only issue is which side of the carriage she is on but we had good views into open carriage both ways.
