The Guard Changes

Most of you are aware of the changing of the guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace.  However, there are so many people watching it’s very hard to get close.  We found out by accident there is a ceremony at Windsor Castle too.  As you can see I was within 25 feet of the band as they played and marched off the field.

Royal Albert Hall

Attending Royal Albert Hall to hear a performance of Tchaikovsky played by the Royal London Philharmonic Orchestra was one of the highlights of our recent visit to London.  These round objects are fiberglass acoustic diffusers and were installed in the ceiling to reduce the echo effect.  They also make for an interesting photo.

Windsor Castle

We hired a bus to drive us to Windsor Castle which was 2.5 hours from London.  It was well worth the cost and time it took.  They also have a changing of the guard ceremony which is much easier to see than at Buckingham Palace.
