This is a great "living" museum.
The audio guide is very good and the history from the beginnings is so interesting.
The exhibits are excellent too.
You can see the stabled horses through the separating windows and stand by the mounted horses at the entrance.
The Household Cavalry Museum is a small museum but full of interesting memorabilia. The staff are so friendly & ready to answer any questions you might have. There is also opportunity to dress up in different uniforms & helmets. Great fun.

Treated a friend to a visit for her birthday. We both are horse riders so have natural association with most things horsey! This museum is a little gem! No it’s not as large as somewhere like the Natural History Museum bit that makes the visit...More
I had never been here before so decided to give it a try. The entrance fee is relatively steep for a small museum and maybe that is why it was not busy. The museum covers all aspects of the history of the regiment from being...More
Try to make it for the changing of the guard. Just incredible! The museum is really fascinating and full of historical facts and previous military uniforms. Great for the kids as they can also get involved. You can also view the horses having their saddles...More
Great little museum depicting the history of the Household Cavalry. You can listen on headphones or wander through and read the placards in each of the exhibits.
Children can interact by trying on some of the clothing as worn by the soldiers.

Timing is key if you want to experience the whole thing. There is a changing of the horse guard in the morning and you need to get that time right, if you want to get the full experience seeing the riders and horses "do their...More
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

Hi Vincent, that is a very interesting question, might I recommend an ancestry D.N.A kit, I'm sure England will be more than happy to check and confirm, I personally thought it was the missing head of the ' UNKNOWN SOLDIER ' who is buried in WESTMINSTER ABBEY, until I read through the literature that they have in the museum but they insist that that is Shaws skull, weather your related to him or not that is all down to you to find out,I would say that it is a possibility that you are many soldiers from that time used to travel all over Scandinavia Greenland Canada, who knows, get a d.n.a kit and check it out, and if you are let me know, and we can meet up for a drink when you come and collect your earnings,,, 'lol'
