Horse Guards Parade
One of the most famous tourist attractions in London: Horse Guards Parade
Horse Guards Parade is one of the most famous pieces of real estate in London, right next to St James’s Palace and Buckingham Palace. It's where all the major ceremonial parades in honour of royalty have always taken place in the modern era, and the place attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. You can come any day to watch the ceremonies, and you can also sometimes find other events on the go here, such as the odd music concert by one of the icons of the day. It's the kind of venue that is so massive in scale it’s only really suitable for the grandest of occasions, and these are indeed exactly what you can expect when you buy or sell Horse Guards Parade tickets on StubHub.
A very long history of splendid events
The first thing you should see at Horse Guards Parade is of course one of the military ceremonies and parades. Royal pomp and splendour doesn't get much more perfect than this. Every day you can join thousands of Londoners and tourists watching the Changing of the Guard. At other times you can watch the famed Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment performing the Trooping of the Colour for the Queen's birthday festivities and parades, and it’s almost impossible not to imagine feats of valour in service of empire on these occasions as we swell with national pride. The parade ground was originally a jousting tournament venue during the time of Henry VIII, so it's always had equestrian associations. Many of the most important events and ceremonies in the history of London have taken place here, going all the way back to the 17th century. It's synonymous with all the things we celebrate about being British and is one of the centrepieces of London - a place you simply have to visit if you live in the UK. For that purpose you can get your Horse Guards Parade tickets right here.
Student parties and nightclubs nearby
Horse Guards Parade has sometimes hosted live events, with one of the most memorable being the recent performance by Mike Oldfield of his "Tubular Bells" musical opus. It was also used for the London Polo Championships and was the venue for a massive outdoor concert by Muse, with a tie-in to the Brad Pitt showcase movie "World War Z". Nearby, you can go nightclubbing at Epic Dalston or, if you prefer, hit the Wicked Student Nights that have become famous in the area at Cafe de Paris, which is just around the corner. There's always so much to look forward to when you find yourself with the Horse Guards Parade tickets that you can get on StubHub.
