An absolute gem of a museum
Chris R, 13/01/2015 (Mature Adults)
We went on Sunday 11 January 2015 - we saw the changing of the guard then visited the museum. We were in London as a birthday treat for my nephew (20 on the 8th) and niece (22 on the 12th) and the museum was the choice of my nephew who is joining the Household Cavalry in April - what an inspired choice! The museum is small but very well organised - there is a lot of information and history, some of it quirky, some really quite moving, and the volunteer guide we spoke to on the day was a delightful lady who really knew her stuff. You can see into the stables and observe the beautiful horses and see a few troopers going about their business - you can also do a bit of dress up in actual cavalry kit, excellent practice for my nephew! Well worth a visit - it only takes about an hour so even if museums aren't really your thing you'll probably be able to manage this one. Bit of a note - part of the museum is in the old stables and there are a few cobbles to negotiate so may be a bit difficult for those with mobility issues.
