Learn about the Foot Guards

The Guards Museum, at the Wellington Barracks on Birdcage Walk in Westminster, tells the history of the regiments of Foot Guards.

These are the Grenadier Guards, the Coldstream Guards, the Scots Guards, the Irish Guards and Welsh Guards, who, along with the two regiments of Household Cavalry make up the Queen's Household Division and guard The Queen and the Royal Palaces. The museum opened in 1988, and is home to a wide collection charting the history of the regiments from the 17th century to present, through uniforms, paintings, drawings, and sculptures.

The museum is open 10.00am to 4.00pm, 7 days a week and costs £3. For more information visit http://www.theguardsmuseum.com/.
