Merry Christmas to you from all at The Household Cavalry Museum!

Merry Christmas to you from all at The Household Cavalry Museum!

On this special day, we thought we would share with you an image from our archive.

This image, 100 years on from when it was taken, shows the guards enjoying their Christmas at Knightsbridge Barracks during the First World War.

We would like to take this moment to thank you all for all of your support throughout the year.

As we look forward into 2017, there are lots of exciting things ahead for the museum. It is our 10th Anniversary next year since we have been open so please look out for our event series launching in the New Year. Best wishes to you all.

 

Merry Christmas to you from all at The Household Cavalry Museum!

Meet Oxford!

Meet Oxford! At 17.3 hands, he is one of the tallest horses in the regiment.

While the other horses are away to grass, the rest of them will still be working hard throughout the Christmas period.

The Household Cavalry mount guard at Horse Guards 365 days of the year, even on Christmas Day! So spare a thought for the soldiers and horses while you are enjoying the festive season.

The museum is closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & Boxing Day reopening on the 27th December!
