Private Hire & Events

With its splendid setting on Horse Guards Parade in the very heart of ceremonial London, the museum not only celebrates the history and work of HM The Queen’s bodyguard, the Household Cavalry, the highest ranks in the British Army, but also offers itself as a wonderful and unique setting for a private use.
