London Trooping the Colour

Where: London at Horseguards Parade
When: 2nd Saturday in June
Time: 10.30


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.

Helpful Hints

Expect big crowds! Tickets must be applied for in advance (see website).

In 2017 it will be on Saturday 17th June .
