Private Tours

Exclusive access, just for you …

Enjoy a personalised private tour of the Household Cavalry Museum: out of museum hours and away from the crowds. Perfect for that special occasion, gift or family treat.

Starting on the nation’s official parade ground, your guide will curate this private tour whilst you learn what it takes to protect the King 24/7 both at home and abroad; you can peek into the working 18th century stables through our Gallery window and even try on real uniforms. You’ll even be accompanied as you watch the King’s mounted bodyguard enact their ‘public duties’ and learn all the secrets behind the pomp and ceremony.

A unique British experience like no other.
