Ceremonial military guns will go bang bang at the Tower of London and Green Park to mark HM The Queen’s Official Birthday.
The number of rounds fired in a Royal salute depends on the place and occasion.
The basic Royal salute is 21 rounds. In Hyde Park and Green Park an extra 20 rounds are added because they are Royal Parks.
At the Tower of London 62 rounds are fired on Royal anniversaries (the basic 21, plus a further 20 because the Tower is a Royal Palace and Fortress, plus another 21 ‘for the City of London’) and 41 on other occasions.
The gun salutes at the Tower of London take place along the riverside, so visible to all, but the area is cramped. Often you get a better view from Tower Bridge.
In the Royal Parks, look for the signs which direct you to the location.
