One of the most splendid sights in London for any visitor to the capital is that of the Household Cavalry undertaking guard duty at one of London’s main tourist attractions.
The Household Cavalry Museum tells the story of the founding and development of the Household Cavalry and how its role changed when horses became outmoded on the battlefield thanks to the development of machine guns, artillery and the metal horse, the tank.
What’s more the Household Cavalry Museum explains through a series of fascinating displays and exhibits what the Household Cavalry’s current function is and how the regiment fulfils its military duties today.
