The Household Cavalry Museum


The Household Cavalry Museum, in the heart of Royal London at Horse Guards (official entrance to the Royal Residences) offers a truly enriching experience celebrating the history, heroes and exploits of the British Army’s senior regiment from its origins in 1661.

Fascinating rare exhibits, dazzling displays of uniforms, the chance to see (through a glass partition) troopers in the stables preparing their horses, the ability to try on real helmets and cuirasses, audio visual presentations, interactive displays, all combined with the opportunity to view outside either the daily Guard Change on Horse Guards at 10:50 (09:50 Sundays), the Guard Inspection (16:00) or mounted sentry changes on the hour (10:00 – 16:00).

A London must-see presenting a uniquely British blend of pageantry, tradition and history.
