Point of Interest

Barracks

England / Europe

Victoria Barracks were built for the Foot Guards in 1795. During the 19th century many other infantry regiments were quartered there along with the Grenadier Guards, the Coldstream Guards and the Scots Guards. Today, five Guards regiments come to stay in Victoria Barracks in turn, to do guard duty at Windsor Castle. The Irish Guards who were formed in 1900, and the Welsh Guards who came into existence in 1915, are also now stationed there. If you wish to follow the Changing of the Guard procession, they set out from these Barracks at about 10.45, with the returning Guard arriving back at about 11.30. This does not happen every day so it is important to check the timetables.
