Horse Guards Parade can be closed at short notice on the odd occasion due to a State Visit or rehearsals leading up to the Queen's Birthday Parade in June. In most instances the Museum will know in advance and inform intending groups if there is a problem, but it is still best to check with us a few days in advance.
