    Full title reads: "Beating the bounds at the Tower of London".

    Various shots of a procession of Beefeater soldiers, choir boys in robes and mortar boards and schoolchildren carrying canes. The procession walks around the area surrounding the Tower of London (passing Tower Bridge). The children beat the ground and walls with their canes. The procession goes over the draw bridge, over the moat, and into the Tower itself. It is the annual custom of beating the Tower's boundaries.
