Hi,

We are planning a visit to Buckingham Palace, London. It is known that the Changing of the Guards take place at 11:30 am, lasting about 45 minutes.

So it seems we could watch this ceremony, and then visit the State Rooms at about 12:30.

But I'm confused of this: Do we need a ticket to watch the Guard Changing? Or we just wait outside the Palace to witness it?

My sincere thanks,

Nope. Just show up. But get there early as it's just about the #1 tourist attraction in London, so it's almost always swarmed with people. I myself have never managed to see it.
