Castle Trek – day 1 – Windsor Castle to Bletchley

Support the Regiment’s Castle Trek team as they undertake a 446 mile walk from Windsor Castle to Edinburgh Castle over 10 days to raise funds for the Household Cavalry Foundation and the Royal British Legion.

To add to this hugely physically and mentally draining challenge, the team are adding some public entertainment to the mix and Martin Semple will be performing his solo show Stand Up Soldier each and every evening!

Castle Trek

The Household Cavalry Museum support the Castle Trek challenge!

We’re hugely excited to be supporting the Regiment’s Castle Trek team as they undertake a 446 mile walk from Windsor Castle to Edinburgh Castle over 10 days to raise funds for the Household Cavalry Foundation and the Royal British Legion.

 

From 31 March we will be displaying kit, rations and planning information to help visitors understand what it takes to accomplish such a great achievement.

 

From July we’ll be following their progress from start to finish with an on-site map and on-line social media posts.

 

On 7 August this epic journey will end with the lads crossing the finishing line as part of the Edinburgh Tattoo.
