Reality: Buckingham Palace
What time of year are you planning this trip to see the Queen’s Guard? It’s doesn’t matter, pack an umbrella. It will be raining no matter when you go. In fact, it’s rarer that you have a sunny day in London than a rainy one.
Despite this, thousands of people stand in the rain every year to get a glimpse of the Palace and the guards. So be prepared to stand in the rain, rows deep just to watch some guys in ridiculously tall hats march.
