Changing the Guard takes place between 10.45 and 11.30 every day in the summer, and every other day in the winter (but never on a Sunday). Windsorians welcome the disruption of traffic as they respect any kind of ceremony. The new Guard marches from Victoria Barracks up to the Castle and then the old Guard marches back again. Changing of the Guard normally takes place on the Parade Ground within the Castle, and can be watched by visitors within the Castle precincts. The most normal regiments on guard are the five different Foot Guard regiments, which are stationed in Windsor in turn; Grenadier Guards, Coldstream Guards, Scots Guards, Irish Guards and Welsh Guards. The Irish Guards are usually led by their mascot, an Irish Wolfhound, and unless it is raining each regiment is accompanied by a band. Sometimes other regiments such as the Gurkhas mount guard at Windsor Castle.
