Wellington Barracks is a military barracks in Westminster, central London, for the Foot Guards battalions on public duties in that area. The building is located about three hundred yards from Buckingham Palace, allowing the guard to be able to reach the palace very quickly in an emergency, and lies between Birdcage Walk and Petty France. Three companies are based at the barracks, as well as all of the Foot Guards bands and the regimental headquarters.

  • Meeting a lot of people I have worked with. Great times. Thank you guys.
  • The starting point for our celebrations for the RAF 100... the exterior is very grand and for persons visiting it for the first time are captivated by its looks... It does look very tired and behind the exterior isn't very impressive at all... But it's a working military barracks after all and must be taken into account... There is a guard mount (royal duties) every single day, and takes some punishment.. I was honoured to march onto the "hallowed Square" ready to march off on the 10th July.. Not everyone can say that...
