What to expect

The Household Cavalry Museum is a living Museum in the heart of Horse Guards, Whitehall, London. It celebrates the history and accomplishments of The Household Cavalry offering a unique ‘behind the scenes’ look at the work that goes into the ceremonial and armoured renaissance role of HM The Queen’s Mounted Bodyguard.

The experience comes alive with compelling personal stories, interactive displays and stunning rare objects - many on public display for the first time.

The Horseguard have two roles: as a mounted regiment they guard Her Majesty The Queen on ceremonial occasions in London and across the UK and are a key part of the Royal pageantry; as an operational regiment they serve around the world in armored fighting vehicles. They currently have units deployed on active service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Over the centuries they have amassed an outstanding collection of rare and unique treasures from ceremonial uniforms, royal standards and gallantry awards to musical instruments, horse furniture and silverware by Fabergé. Modern additions to the collection include Jacky Charlton's football cap Sefton's bridle - the horse that was injured in the 1982 Hyde Park bombings. Much of the collection has resulted from the close association that has existed between the Household Cavalry and Royalty. They have, after all, protected successive kings and queens from rebels, rioters and assassins for nearly 350 years.
