If like me you're a bit of a history buff, or have a keen interest in all things horse related, or British Militaria, then this great little museum should be right up your street; covering over three hundred years of the Household Cavalry in an...More

This is a small but packed museum full of information about the 400+ year history of the Household Cavalry, and makes a great way to round out a day in central London. I recommend trying to combine your visit with the 11am Changing of the...More

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
