The Queen's Birthday Gun SalutesThe Queen celebrates her 91st birthday in 2017 and on 21st April - The Queen's actual birthday, which she celebrates privately - the occasion is marked publicly by gun salutes in central London. The 41-gun Queen's Birthday Gun Salute in Hyde Park takes place at midday, there's a 21-gun salute in Windsor Great Park and a 62-gun salute at the Tower Of London at 1pm. It's a spectacular show of pomp and ceremony and it's also the only time when you will see horses legally at a full gallop in a Royal Park - with a ton and a half of cannon in tow. While the Queen's Birthday Gun Salutes are held to celebrate her actual birthday on 21st April, there are further celebrations for her official birthday in June which is marked by Trooping the Colour.

 

About Tower Of London

Make your way from Traitor's Gate to join Sir Walter Raleigh in the Bloody Tower as he awaits his fate for allegedly plotting against James I. More about Tower Of London
