Families are welcome to come, explore and experience our Museum & learn about the Household Cavalry.

SEE a living museum and working stables in the heart of London.

SMELL freshly polished tack and the working stables.

TOUCH real stable stalls built over two centuries ago.

TRY ON an actual Queen’s Life Guard uniform.

MEET characters from history and heroes of today.

From family friendly quiz trails to dressing up as a soldier, it is a great experience for the whole family.

We also run regular arts & crafts workshops and UNDER 5’s MINI TROOPER sessions on school holidays and weekends. These fun sessions allow children to discover all  about the Household Cavalry, the regiments history and the exhibtions in the museum, whilst making something special to take home.
