Trooping the Colour

10:00am – 2:00pm
Free

The Queen’s ‘official birthday’ is celebrated by the Trooping the Colour, a tradition since 1748. (Her actual birthday is in April, which is less conducive for parade-worthy weather). Over 1,400 officers and men from the queen’s personal guard — as well as over 200 horses — put on an impressive parade from Buckingham Palace along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall and then back again.

To watch the Trooping of Colour, the public is advised to watch from The Mall or from St. James Park (and to be there by 9am). There is also ticketed seating for £10.00£30.00, which has to be applied for in advance (in January or February).

A fly past of RAF jets happens at 1pm.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
