Itinerary

The Household Cavalry Museum is a living museum about real people doing a real job in a real place.

Through a large glazed partition visitors can see the horses in the working stables stalls and at certain times troopers tending to them. Several AV and touch screen presentations give vivid insights into all aspects of the Household Cavalry. Visitors can even try on parts of the uniform.

Historic setting
The Household Cavalry Museum sits within Horse Guards in Whitehall, central London, one of the city’s most historic buildings. Dating from 1750, it is still the headquarters of the Household Division, in which the Household Cavalry has performed the Queen’s Life Guard in a daily ceremony that has remained broadly unchanged for over 350 years.
