From Tuesday 3rd May 2022, public access in front of Buckingham Palace will be extremely limited due to the preparation and build for events to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Whilst Changing the Guard will still take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays at 11am, the opportunities to view from the front of the Palace will be extremely limited and those wishing to view the ceremony are advised to arrive early. Once the allocated areas to view Changing the Guard are full, the area will be closed off. For those unable to find a viewing point in front of the Palace, the Guards can still be viewed en route as they make their way along the Mall from Marlborough Road, and there will be additional opportunity to view the new guard form up through the railings of Wellington Barracks, on Birdcage Walk.
Restricted public access is expected to end by Monday 20th June 2022. From Tuesday 7th June, Changing the Guard will take place daily until the end of July. There will be no Changing the Guard on Monday 6th June.
The Household Cavalry change guard on Horse Guards Parade daily at 11am (10am on Sundays). On days of rehearsals or other events taking place on Horse Guards, Guard Change can move to 4pm.
