  • It’s close to Buckingham Palace, but probably gets missed by most tourists. It’s very well done, and gives a personal look at Guardsmen’s lives through the centuries. Big picture history and fine poin...  more »

  • Great experience containing detailed information on the Guards' units, history, and explanations. Staff were friendly and played the welcome video as soon as I started. Could have benefited from a warning that they do not allow photography, rather than being told after. Cost for an adult is 6£ (3£ for students) - worth it given the amount of unfunded work out into it.
  • Just passing, I knew last admissions had gone in, I wasn't interested in visiting today, just getting information. I'd barely put my foot through the gate when I was rudely stopped by someone lazing about outside. No, "hello", no ,'I'm sorry, but...", He could've been anyone. Obviously thought I was some thick tourist he could get away with being rude to. Asking who he was before telling him my business, he said he was Andrew Wallace, and the curator. How nice for you, I thought, but you need to be more welcoming of visitors - perhaps especially tourists. You don't know who I am, not that it matters, but how do you know I'm not a concierge, or tour guide, etc. I asked for any literature and was told very abruptly that they don't give our any information. I was polite, but made up my mind that I would NEVER visit our recommend this place to anyone. Unfriendly, unwelcoming, unwelcoming, and unworthy of tourism. Go elsewhere for a friendlier London, because you won't find it here. And that's from the curator (if that's who he really was).
  • We were very late arriving and Andrew Wallace was just about to close thankfully he let us in anyway for a look around. Outstanding exhibition of the Guards
  • Wonderful knowledge and very grateful staff
  • Amazing place...a must see
