Highlights

Head inside the Household Cavalry Museum in London with your entrance ticket, and then browse the extensive museum at your own pace. Open since 2007, the exhibition showcases the history and role of the Household Cavalry — a senior corps formed of the Life Guards and Blues and Royals regiments.

Formed during the reign of King Charles II in the 17th century to act as the king’s protection, the Household Cavalry now has multiple tasks; while best-known for its ceremonial duties guarding Buckingham Palace, the regiment also fulfills a reconnaissance role and assists in combat duties on the front line of battles around the world.

Explore the 18th-century former vaulted stables, and learn all about the Household Cavalry’s close association with the British Royal Family while browsing the museum’s impressive collection of rare military exhibits. High-profile members of the royal family, such as Prince Harry and the Queen, are currently part of the regiment and Prince William also served within it. Read first-hand accounts about the soldiers’ rigorous training schedules, see pictures from battles, and learn about units deployed in active service as international peacekeepers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Look into the working stables of the Queen’s Life Guard through a glass screen and see today’s troopers working with their horses. If you want, try on parts of the regiment’s uniform and pose for a photo! Make use of a state-of-the-art handheld multimedia guide as you walk around, and enjoy a greater insight into the history and accomplishments of the elite Household Cavalry.

Many people find two hours sufficient to look around the museum, but your ticket enables you to spend as long as you like inside. There are no cafes on site, but there is an extensive gift shop if you wish to shop for souvenirs and postcards.
