Horse Guards
Westminster, London
Tel: 020 7930 3070 Charing Cross 0.3 miles

A living museum set in the heart of Whitehall, providing a “behind the scenes” look at life in the Household Cavalry, founded by King Charles II in 1661. The museum has troopers working with horses in the original 18th century stables, intriguing personal stories of the soldiers' rigorous training regime and displays of rare military objects.

Household Cavalry Museum reviews

I went there today and was amazed at everything in there. I could have spent all day in there. There is a glass wall in the museum which allows you to see the horses in their stables, and the guards men getting ready, tacking and grooming the horses and getting their equipment ready for going out. I will be visting this museum again when I'm next in London, and I strongly recommend it to all.

Visited today and was really disappointed. It took all of 15 minutes to walk round the museum, which is very small and a total waste of money. I also think it's a real shame that there are women horse guards; they should try to keep it traditional and stop moving with the times.

The 'Horse Guards' is my first stop whenever I come to London -before I commence business activities - and I have been visiting London now for some 4 decades.

The elegance of both the horse and its guard on his back is unique in the world and is always inspiring, exciting and, as far as I am concerned, truly representative of the overall beauty and history of England in all facets of its culture and being.

May it never change... and God bless the Queen!!
