The Household Cavalry Museum, London

4.3
#58 of 257 in Museums in London
With a proud tradition of over three centuries

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 Royal Guards are very well dressed and well disciplined. Nice to click some photographs with them. Would be great if you can sync with the timing of the change of guards, that's very nice to watch. It goes till the palace.
  • Quieter guard change than Buckingham palace but more fun with the Horses. Top tip watch from junction of The Mall and Horse Guard Parade to see the arrival of new guard then follow to parade ground for change. Remember the whole thing takes half hour.
