A must-see for history lovers, this museum grants you the opportunity to explore London’s regimental history. Situated in the heart of Horse Guards on Whitehall, this exclusive tour offers visitors the chance to uncover the history of HM The Queen’s Mounted Bodyguard and even allows you to try on the iconic red tunic for a photo opportunity!
The museum houses many artefacts from the Battle of Waterloo (1815), actual items used on the battlefield. It’s a museum of outstanding merit, interest and rarity, the likes of which are not often seen.
The tour also takes you through a behind-the-scenes look at the working horse stables. With numerous parades taking place throughout the day, the stables are always full of activity, horses returning to the stable, or being prepared to go on guard. The museum also tells visitors of the rigorous and gruelling training both riders and the horses go through to be in the Queen’s Mounted Bodyguard regiment.
