The Household Cavalry Museum is a living Museum in the heart of Royal London – Horse Guards. We offer a unique behind the scenes look into the daily life of a working soldier in the regiment.
Our new schools & families programme is full of fun curriculum focused workshops.
In most sessions:
You will look at the dual role of the regiment – ceremonial and combat.
You will discover the secrets and stories of the Queen’s Life Guard, who have guarded the Sovereign for over 350 years.
You will learn more about the armoured reconnaissance role.
You will try on genuine uniform of the Household Cavalry.
You will have a worthwhile experience learning outside the classroom.
This regiment is the ‘best of both worlds’.
The visit to the museum is complimented by colourful sentry changes throughout the day so your visit will always include viewing the spectacular ceremonial guard duties which show unique British pageantry at its best.
We’re thrilled to announce, hot off the press, our new book with Gresham Publishing. “Trusted Guardians” helps pupils explore Fundamental British Values in a fun and engaging way, and the (pending) accompanying classroom poster also helps teachers demonstrate the classes progress throughout the term. End the term with a visit to the museum to really bring the fun to life.

Three fascinated Westminster school groups got to ‘meet’ Waterloo hero Samuel Godley in the Household Cavalry Stables last week; he told them about his experiences in the great battle and also answered interview questions. The groups were also able to meet serving members of the regiment to compare regimental life 200 years ago to today. Much fun was had by all.
