Project Description

Trace the history of three old and famous cavalry regiments of the region through troubled battles and wars…

Set within the Courtyard of the beautiful Thoresby Hall, The Queen’s Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum tells the story of the cavalry in the British Army from the days of horseback charge, through to the great tank battles of the Second World War, to present day operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Museum traces the history of three old and famous cavalry regiments, the Queen’s Royal Lancers, the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry and the South Nottinghamshire Hussars.

Visitors can enjoy a series of graphic panels and display cases, learning zones and video presentations transporting them on a journey through the fascinating history. There is an extensive collection of arms, uniforms, medals, silver and paintings illustrating the regiments’ part in the great battles of the last three centuries.

The Museum’s location enables visitors to extend their visit to enjoy the stunning surroundings of Thoresby Hall and wander around the many shops in the Courtyard. With everything from jewellery to artwork, fashion to homeware, there is something for everyone to peruse before relaxing with lunch or a cream tea at the licensed Bay Tree Café.
