The Household Cavalry Museum

The Household Cavalry Museum is a living Museum
in the heart of Horse Guards, Whitehall, London.

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 Queen's Mounted Bodyguard.

New Features for 2014

New displays show the role of The Household Cavalry Regiment (armoured reconnaissance) from The Second World War until the present day including a remarkably lifelike scene of two troopers on patrol in Afghanistan. The capture of the Eagle and Standard of the French 105th regiment of the line by The Royals at the Battle of Waterloo (18th June 1815) is magnificently re-created also. With the 100th anniversary and commemoration of the outbreak of The First World War in mind, a selection of rare exhibits are on display including the cigarette case , French dictionary and pocket book , holed by a single bullet, which belonged to Corporal of Horse Harold Buckby: a very lucky man indeed.

Audiovisual Tour

A multi media guide (included in the entry fee from April 1st 2014) outlines The Household Cavalry's history and achievements with soldiers describing what it is like to serve in the Regiment today on ceremonial duty or in combat.
