The four historic regiments that form today’s Household Cavalry have fought in every major British Army campaign since the Restoration of The Monarchy in 1660. So, by the time your tour ends, you’ll be filled with renewed pride for centuries-old ceremonial traditions being continued, and the breadth and depth of skills possessed by Household Cavalrymen, and their unwavering service for their country.
