001: See the Changing of the guard at Horse Guard Parade

Face it: the changing of the guard is one of London’s most famous institutions and you won’t escape it. That leaves you with the exciting choice of either Buckingham Palace or Horse Guard Parade. I’d advise Horse Guard Parade, because 1) it takes place every day (at 11.00), so you can be sure that you won’t come for nothing, and 2) it’s less crowded, so you will actually get to see something.

If you don’t like horses, you can come back in 2012: the Olympic games beach volleyball matches will take place there.
