So much history in the museum; the building itself; the uniform displays and what the different parts signify or are used for. Battle honours; medals won by individuals; paintings and other art forms depicting the cavalry at various times in its history. Practical examples with regard to cleaning uniforms, equipment, horse tackle. Good videos about training both recruits and horses. Actual horses and cavalrymen in the stable area. Interesting to learn how active service and ceremonial duties are all part of the commitment. A fascinating visit and well worth recommending to others.

Great museum, with plenty of information and pretty moving at times. Very rich in history. Friendly and helpful staff, too.

A highlight of our visit, as always. Both kids and adults spent over two hours in the museum after spending two hours outside watching Changing of the Guard. Seeing the horses being groomed and seeing the training equipment, videos and uniforms was a real delight.

Looking for something a little different to do in London, we decided to try this museum. It is not a big place - but they have packed a lot in. Situated on Horseguards Parade it is in a famous location in London. They were filming a war film of somesort on Horseguards when we visited which was a treat watching some filming and looking at the classic cars being used! The museum has a great selection of artifacts, uniforms etc from the regiment - giving a good history of them and the conflicts that they have taken part in over the years. If you are looking for something a bit different to your usual tourist fodder in London - give them a try!

I enjoyed learning about and seeing the horses. It's a small walk through museum, but full of information.

Stopped for a visit with my toddlers and glad that we did: they loved the dressing-up plus what a great idea to have a huge almost one-way mirror into the stables to see the horses & riders getting ready for parade - the kids loved it !

There wasn't much to do here except hear and read about the history. You can dress up as a cavalry soldier and look at their soldiers grooming the horses.

I visited the Household Cavalry Museum with my father and older brother as part of our trip to London. I didn’t know what to expect and for this reason, was blown away to see a tall muscular handsome looking black horse and an immaculately presented guard. Visitors can simply visit the courtyard out the back of the museum. The latter is where the Trooping of the Colour takes place as I learned after commenting it looked familiar; I got to see the balcony where the Royal Family are photographed. And of course, one can buy tickets to see the Household Cavalry Museum as we did. It’s a small museum, which could easily be covered in an hour or less. By the same token, I found it interesting learning about the origins of the Household Cavalry and their role in modern society. As a former Air Force Cadet who’s had experience with military uniforms and uniform maintenance, I found it fascinating learning about the amount of work that goes into guards’ uniform preparation and their horse ‘furniture.’ Oh yes, and the other thing I enjoyed about my experience: the museum engages 4 out of 5 senses. To sum up: 1) Sight: displays of uniforms, historical artefacts, videos of Cavalry training etc 2) Hearing: videos of Cavalry training with accounts from actual guards about how they feel when they go through training. 3) Smell: the Museum is adjacent to the barracks with actual horses and you can smell them and the manure, too 4) Touch: being able to try on actual uniform coats, headgear, etc to pose with photos of fake horses in the museum

The Household Cavalry Museum is a small museum but full of interesting memorabilia. The staff are so friendly & ready to answer any questions you might have. There is also opportunity to dress up in different uniforms & helmets. Great fun. The changing of the guard outside just adds to the experience.

Treated a friend to a visit for her birthday. We both are horse riders so have natural association with most things horsey! This museum is a little gem! No it’s not as large as somewhere like the Natural History Museum bit that makes the visit all the more personal. The staff were all very friendly and happy to explain anything but the tour round itself is well set out and easy to follow, with interesting displays and artefacts. Highly recommend a visit
