service as a bodyguard to the Sovereign, and made
up of the British Army’s two most senior regiments,
the Household Cavalry sits at the very heart of the cultural and military heritage of Britain. The Regiment’s rich history stretches back
to 1660, from descendants of King Charles II’s Life
Guards and the Earl of Oxford’s ‘Blues’. Since then
it has forged a tradition, ethos and reputation for
excellence and professionalism, whether it is for
State Ceremonial duties, or the British Army's operational requirements.
Every Household Cavalry soldier is first and
foremost a fighting soldier, and uniquely in the
British Army, the Household Cavalry use their
qualities to excellent effect by combining their role
in armoured fighting vehicles with the mounted
State Ceremonial role. It is this flexibility that has
allowed us to remain at the forefront of the combat
operations of today, whilst still maintaining the
highest standards and strong traditions of the past.

The Household Cavalry Museum Reviews
It isn't a very large museum but it was still education and had quite a bit to look at and learn something new. There was a nice shop that isn't too expensive. The staff are volunteers and super..... more »
Ran out of time to visit here but we stopped with the throngs of others for a photographic opportunity. We also saw them on the hop on hop off bus after a parade. more »
Must see if you are a horse person or interested in cavalry. Lots of information on Waterloo and nice exhibits that help to personify the action. They have a glass wall that allows you to view into a working stable and a fun dress up area where you can try on the various uniforms to get a feel of for the weight of them. It is very well done and a good place to watch the changing of the Horse Guard and still have time to go down and see the last half of the changing of the guard at Buckingham palace. You can get very close to the action at the Household Cavalry and get a good spot without having to wait in the sun for an hour. Watch it for 5 or 10 min the walk down the Mall to Constitution Hill by the Canada Gate and see a great view of the end of the Buckingham Palace Change. This is especially good if you have little kids or just don’t want to stand in the sun in a crowd.
Great place to visit before changing of the guards. Gives a good history of the household cavalry, with good displays and information, theres old uniforms to try on and you can view the horses in the stables being prepared for duty. Well worth a visit and prices are good too.
