Choice A: About Face
At the Somerset House in Westminster, teams must dress into a traditional Queen's Guard outfit before participating in a guard mounting ceremony of the changing of the guards, learning a piece of choreography used from the traditional guard mounting ceremonies, then performing with the satisfaction of the parade captain in order to receive their next clue.
Choice B: Pancake Race
At the Victoria Tower Gardens, teams must participate in the annual Parliamentary Pancake Race, in which they must first cook a well-cooked pancake, then participate in a race where they must run while flipping their pancake, without it falling from their frying pan, in a time of 1 minute and 15 seconds to receive their next clue. If the pancake falls from their pan, the racers run out of time to complete the race, or they were judged by not flipping their pancakes enough, they must restart their race.
Both team members must participate in punting boats. One team member must row the punt, standing on the Cambridge End at the back of the punt, while the other team member stands on the Oxford End, the front of the punt, waving a small Union Jack. Once they have successfully traveled around the Magdalen College Island on the River Cherwell, they will receive their next clue from the punting master at the boathouse.
Teams must travel by taxi to Tom Quad of the Christ Church College, where teams are given a bowler hat and an umbrella, which they must bring with them to the Pit Stop, and are told by the bowler to open their umbrellas, in which they are given an opportunity to search Oxford for the Bear Inn to retrieve the Express Pass, or to tip the bowler and give them their Pit Stop clue.
