I knew that Miss Belle and Mr Exuberance were going to find this less interesting so decided to visit Horseguards Parade which is two minutes walk from the Cabinet War Rooms.
To make this more relevant, this week, we read Madeline in London
Rather to my surprise, we managed to catch changing of the guard.
Well, isn't it lovely-they're standing sentry
Right here at the Whitehall entry.

and the changing guards parading. The Life Guards are on the horses with their backs to the camera. Difficult to run round to get a better view with children in tow.
The Blues and Royals are on the opposite side.
We had meant to walk to the entrance of Buckingham Palace but a playground, within site of the Palace, won. A bitter wind stopped too much further exploring-still the the children were excited to see the guards and will, I hope, remember that, not the cold.
On our way home, we walked through Trafalgar Square and saw the Norwegian Christmas Tree.

Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
"Do you think the King knows all about me?"
"Sure to, dear, but its time for tea,"
