Virtual visit: fun facts and Cavalry colouring in... and brand new podcast and video series!

Even during this time of isolation there’s no reason for the fun to stop completely. Inspired by the Household Cavalry who are carrying on like the troopers they truly are, we thought we’d bring you some virtual fun to enjoy from the comfort of your own home. 


1. Enjoy some arts and crafts  at home by downloading some Cavalry colouring in pages,   here.

2. Unleash your inventive side and accept our   design challenge,   here.

3. Be your own   quiz-master  and test the family with some fun facts,   here.

4. Name our horses! Each year when they complete training our horses are given their official name in line with that year’s chosen letter (running in alphabetical order). The next set of names all will start with the letter ‘U’ and we need your help choosing good ones. Tag us in social media (Facebook or Twitter) with your ideas, or have some fun writing us a letter and we’ll put the best ones forward for consideration.

5. Try out  our new weekly  podcast  Not a Lot of People Know This… by listening to the stories or reading them for yourself   here.

6. Accept our   Home Challenge  and recreate   these images   from our collection at home using whatever ‘tools’ you have to hand. Artistic licence definitely welcome.

7. Support our soldiers completing 7 marathons in 7 days (by running 282 loops of their garden) and attempt our   282 Challenge : 282 loops of your kitchen table! Split it with your family, take as long as you like and share your photos with us on Facebook and Twitter and we’ll reward your efforts with free Museum admission tickets for when we re-open.

8. Enjoy an armchair adventure care of our Regimental Historian, Christopher Joll who is offering free access to over 50 hours of his audio-books: highly enjoyable entertainment in the comfort of your own home.

9. Delve into the secrets and mysteries of our Regimental Collection like never before with our new Household Cavalry Museum video series. Click here for the YouTube Channel playlist and here for the large print accompaniment text. New episodes weekly.

10. Enjoy the Christmas season in style with these fun festive family activity sheets, here.

Let’s stay positive until we can all open our doors again, and in the meantime you can always enjoy  a virtual 3D walk through our Museum at your own pace,   here.
