Household Cavalry Museum is unlike any other military museum because it offers a unique ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at the work that goes into the ceremonial duties and operational role of The Household Cavalry. From a glazed screen inside the Museum, visitors can view into the working stables of The Queen’s Life Guard.
Visitors can see troopers working with horses in the original 18th century stables and hear first hand accounts of their rigorous and demanding training.
The Museum comes alive with compelling personal stories, interactive displays and stunning rare objects – many on display to the public for the first time.
The Household Cavalry Museum sits within Horse Guards in Whitehall, central London, one of the city’s most historic buildings. Dating from 1750, it is still the headquarters of the Household Division, in which the Household Cavalry has performed the Queen’s Life Guard in a daily ceremony that has remained broadly unchanged for over 350 years.
The Changing of The Queen’s Life Guard takes place on Horse Guards Parade outside the Museum, Monday to Saturday at 11.00 and on Sundays at 10.00. The Daily Inspection takes place in the Front Yard at 16.00 daily.
During the period mid - May to mid – June, due to the use of Horse Guards Parade for ceremonial rehearsals in the lead up to the Queen’s Birthday Parade (2nd Saturday in June), The Museum is closed some weekday mornings , the two preceding Saturday mornings and occasionally at very short notice at other times for security and operational reasons.
Guard Change: Monday – Saturday: 11.00, Sunday: 10.00. Daily Inspection: 16.00.
Please contact the Museum on 020 7930 3070 for current information.

Couldn't have been better. It made for a most enjoyable visit . I would recommend it to anyone, especially first-time visitors.

"We went to see so much more than if we had to pay individually. Was nice paying for it before the trip so didn't have to bring extra money and worry about running short. We also got the travel pass and restaurant discount book and discovered some very nice places to eat that we wouldn't have known about. Planning on coming back in 2014 and will buy another one! Recommend it 200%!"
