Not a big museum but very interesting. Shows the history in a basic but easy to follow way. Not expensive entry either, only 8 quid which is pretty decent.

Visited this museum while in London.. As you enter the actual site of the place, you will walk through large gates where two mounted cavalry men are positioned as many a cavalryman has done over so many many years before them. The highly polished boots,...More

Great little Museum, check out the horses in the stables from ind=side the museum. Go at 3:45 pm to view the 4pm review of the guard. This is a hold over from a long ago instituted punishment to ensure the guard is sober at 4pm,...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
