The Main Event

Get ready for a right royal day out and discover everything you'd love to know about the royals and their horses.

Visit the Household Cavalry Museum and The Royal Mews for a chance to see historical moments and accomplishments of the The Household Cavalry with ‘behind the scenes’ insights at the work that goes into the ceremonial and armoured reconnaissance role of HM The King’s Mounted Bodyguard.

Set in the heart of Whitehall in London, the living museum with real people doing real jobs, remains the headquarters of the Household Division and The Household Cavalry. The Household Cavalry was formed in 1661 under the direct order of King Charles II and has roles: as a mounted regiment on horseback guarding His Majesty The King during ceremonial occasions and as an operational regiment serving around the world in armoured fighting vehicles.

You’ll then get the chance to see The Royal Mews, one of the finest working stables in the world and home to the royal collection of coaches and carriages plus the horses that are renowned for performing so beautifully on historical royal days.

Once you’ve been dazzled by the regiment and routine of the cavalry and The Royal Mews, take a walk down the River Thames on the Embankment to The Royal Horseguards Hotel for a sparkling afternoon tea!
