Situated at Horse Guards, Whitehall between Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey the Museum lies at the heart of historic London in magnificent mid 18th century vaulted stables. Dazzling displays of uniforms, weaponry and other prized exhibits...more
Our (family of 4) first visit to the home of the Household Cavalry, where timing meant that we were there to see the daily changing of the Queen’s Life Guard - full of ceremony and great to see but, after some 15 minutes of the...More
I’ve been a few years ago and enjoyed the museum then and so as I was in London I took my daughter. We timed it perfect and was there to view the guard changing (10:00 hrs Sunday and 11:00 hrs every other day). A great...More
Visited this as I love horses and have been pass it many times on visiting Horse Guards parade, it was def. worth it. The museum explains the founding of these Guards, and how the horses are cared for and what the guards do the in...More
With a horse mad son, we passed by this place after trying to get a glimpse of Terry's front door. We stopped to say hello to the guard's horse and then popped our head into the grounds of the museum. An awesome place that leads...More
With the number of well known ‘large’ museums in London it would be easy to miss this smaller, more focussed attraction. With my wife’s interest in horses, we went in on the spur of the moment having noticed the sign while walking through Whitehall.
I visited the museum with three friends, shortly after arriving we were fortunate to meet volunteer guide Nick Lee, an extremely personable and knowledgeable guide who was able to do bring the exhibits to life with his narrative. He made sure to take us outside...More
The Household Cavalry Museum is a fantastic place to visit for anybody of any age there is something for everybody. There are uniforms for the kids to try on - and adults too! You can see into the stables as the Queens Lifeguard go about...More
This is a great museum. We weren't overloaded with information, so could take in what there was. Children enjoyed trying on clothes. Liked being able to see the real horses and soldiers through the glass.
I've walked past these gates on and off for 30 years and had never seen them open but there was some kind of display going on and then we found the museum - what a treat! The history was interesting and tied with the old...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
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

Hi Vincent, that is a very interesting question, might I recommend an ancestry D.N.A kit, I'm sure England will be more than happy to check and confirm, I personally thought it was the missing head of the ' UNKNOWN SOLDIER ' who is buried in WESTMINSTER ABBEY, until I read through the literature that they have in the museum but they insist that that is Shaws skull, weather your related to him or not that is all down to you to find out,I would say that it is a possibility that you are many soldiers from that time used to travel all over Scandinavia Greenland Canada, who knows, get a d.n.a kit and check it out, and if you are let me know, and we can meet up for a drink when you come and collect your earnings,,, 'lol'
