Enjoy a visit to The Household Cavalry Museum which is a living Museum in the heart of Horse Guards, Whitehall, London. As 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.
It celebrates the history and accomplishments of The Household Cavalry offering a unique ‘behind the scenes’ look at the work that goes into the ceremonial and armoured reconnaissance role of HM The King’s Mounted Bodyguard. It is a living museum about real people doing a real job in a real place.
Through a large glazed partition you can see troopers working with horses in the original 18th century stables. The experience comes alive with compelling personal stories, first hand accounts of the troopers’ rigorous and demanding training, interactive displays and stunning rare objects – many on public display for the first time.
After your visit you can talk a stroll along The Mall to The Royal Horseguards Hotel to enjoy a relaxing dining experience.
An impressive historic building in London, The Royal Horseguards Hotel is situated on the River Thames at the Embankment.
It encompasses two iconic buildings: The National Liberal Club which has played host to historical icons including Churchill, Gladstone and Lloyd-George; and the club’s magnificent apartments which were previously the home of the first chief of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service.
Inside you’ll find Victorian grandeur combined with elegant, first-class contemporary comfort which sets The Royal Horseguards Hotel apart as one of the finest hotels near Westminster.
