Schools

Click here for the Household Cavalry Museum Schools Programme which shows our workshop options.

Our school sessions are for groups of up to 25 or 30 pupils.

We offer a 2hr workshop made up of a carousel of activities (dressing up in uniform, a Museum trail and either an arts and crafts or Fast&Furious drama activity).

Workshops can be done in either a morning session (10:15-12:15hrs) which includes watching (some of) the Mounted Guard Change, or an afternoon session (14:30-16:30hrs) which includes watching the 4 o’clock Garrison inspection.

Having seen these modern day Regimental duties, each visit enables you relate what the class has seen back to the historic period in which the workshop is based; that way you can continue the learning with some compare/contrast work back in the class room if you’d so like.

We’ll of course also give you the completed arts and crafts activity sheets or the Fast&Furious drama script to take home with you so you can follow up your visit to the Museum will classroom activities or a school assembly.
Each session is £120 for up to 30 children and includes 3 adult spaces (1 per 10 children) free of charge.

Additional adults are £8pp.
