Bring the whole family to the Museum on Thursday 17 February and to meet some very special Household Cavalry Regiment members.

We have Farriers, Tailors, Saddlers, and of course… horses!

We’re offering the opportunity to go behind the scenes and meet our wonderful Regimental family in each session (9.30-10.45am, 10.45am-12.00pm, 12.30-1.45pm, 1.45-3pm, and 3-4.15pm) so make a day of it and book as many sessions as you’d like. Each one will give you time with the soldiers and that all important time with the horses.

Go behind the scenes...

Today my son (age 10) and I attended the Household Cavalry Museum Family Open Day. What a wonderful experience this was. There was nothing I could fault. The articles on display were beautiful and seeped in history. The staff were super friendly, especially Alice. The knowledgeable tours and chats given were great. Being able to talk to serving military personnel was wonderful and gave a fabulous insight into the life as a soldier and all the amazing opportunities available to those who have the desire to join the army and serve in this incredible regiment. I learnt a great deal myself and despite the torrential rain left the museum beaming like the absent sunshine.

Past events

The eagle landed - summer 2021

The eagle landed - summer 2021

In June 2021, thanks to the generosity of the National Army Museum, the Eagle so iconic to members of the Blues and Royals today was reunited with the medal of a man whose memory should shine brighter in our Regiment’s history. On reopening in summer 2021, the Museum remedied this by putting on a programme of activity around Styles, his Eagle and the heroes of Waterloo he rode with.

This included a special Waterloo walking tour, activity trails and special events. Featuring the long lost Waterloo Medal of Sjt Francis Styles, a new exhibition trail explored the courage, carnage and controversies of Wellington’s cavalry at the battle that secured almost a century of peace in Europe.
