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.

Director’s Tours

Outside of museum hours the museum offer itself for private hire such as Director’s Tours, Private Tours, Receptions and Dinners and also hosts a range of our own hosted and partnered events.

Filming and photo shoots also work beautifully in our historic spaces.

Thank you so so much for looking after us so gloriously last Tuesday. It was wonderful from start to finish and the ideal place to have a really really lovely party – both beautiful and inspiring.
