|Where:||London at Horseguards Parade|
|When:||2nd Saturday in June|
Trooping the Colour takes place in June each year to mark the Queen’s Official Birthday . It’s one of the great spectacles that overseas tourists love to see! Her Majesty inspects her troops, who parade in formation, and she takes their salute from her open-topped carriage. Around 1500 soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians are on display, followed by a fly-past by the RAF and a gun salute.
Expect big crowds! Tickets must be applied for in advance (see website).
In 2017 it will be on Saturday 17th June .
