Changing of the Guard

Changing of the Guard

Depending on the weather and time of year, the changing of the guard at Windsor Castle takes place roughly every other day. If you time it right, you can watch from the kerb or one of the cafés that line the High Street.

Those guards in the scarlet tunics and bearskin caps are highly trained infantry soldiers who not only serve on the battlefield, but also perform ceremonial duties at Royal residences like Windsor Castle.
