Household Cavalry Museum Visit with Afternoon Tea at the Luxury Amba Hotel
A visit to the Household Cavalry Museum is a must for any horse lover. This fascinating visit combined with a luxury afternoon tea at the nearby Amba Hotel has the perfect ingredients for a memorable day out in London.
Visit to the Household Cavalry
Offering a behind the scenes look at the work which goes into Royal ceremonial and armoured reconnaissance of HM The Queen’s Mounted Bodyguard, this visit showcases the history and accomplishments of the Household Cavalry.
Housed in one of London’s most historic buildings, the Household Cavalry Museum is a living museum. During your visit (be sure to take advantage of the optional free audio guide) you’ll be able to take a peek into the 18th century working stables, discover what it takes to care for the majestic horses and see the regiment in action – hourly sentry changes, daily morning guard changes and daily afternoon Garrison Inspections. View the formal uniform of a cavalryman and if you wish, you can try on the uniform and find out about the helmets (did you know they contained hidden messages), why you would wear a red plume or a white plume and discover the hidden secret of the shiny armour of the Cuirass. All this and more will be revealed.
Your visit to the Household Cavalry will last approximately one hour.
Afternoon Tea at Amba Hotel’s Terrace Restaurant
With views overlooking the Strand, afternoon tea at Amba Hotel provides the opportunity to enjoy a truly quintessential British dining experience. Your afternoon tea is served on tiered cake stands and the traditional menu boasts a mouthwatering selection of delicate finger sandwiches with seasonal fillings, fresh scones with strawberry preserve to be enjoyed with delicious Devonshire clotted cream. Tuck into an array of decadent cakes and pastries and sip on your choice of teas or freshly brewed coffee.
