The Household Cavalry will be Exercising their Freedom to march through Windsor on Saturday 18th May at 14.30pm. The Cavalry have been based here for over two hundred years so it will be a goodbye to Windsor Parade. They are due to move down to Salisbury Plain as part of the Army’s Restructuring. The parade will be around 14.30hrs but an early morning parade will also take place. This is the day of Lady Gabriella’s wedding so Windsor Castle will be closed. So you can expect heavy pedestrianized areas, road closures and parking restrictions in place. They will all be published here. https://www.roadworks.org
The parade route will include the Long Walk, Park Street, St Albans Street, Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street and the Kings Road, with the regiment pausing briefly at the Guildhall where a Salute will be taken.

We are delighted by the feedback and recommendation we have received from Nintendo. The eleven international executives attended the Military History Walk last week and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. They are a very professional team that had been gathered from around the world and had taken time out from their busy schedule to brush up on English culture and history. They gave us the following recommendation…
” We would highly recommend this tour, it’s value for money & the historic information”. Nintendo UK.
The busy executives had come from all around the world. And had taken time out to grasp some English culture and history. It was immense fun working with a Japanese interpreter. The weather stayed dry.
It was a great delight to receive this recommendation. And we continue to look forward to working with other corporate companies in the future.
We are really excited that we can now offer group organisers and operators Dutch interpretation for their groups. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
