Queen's Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum

Lancer UniformThe Queen's Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry museum was opened by HRH Princess Alexandra on Tuesday 26 July 2011. The museum displays the historic collections of The Queen's Royal Lancers, the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry and the South Nottinghamshire Hussars.

The units have brought together their collections to create a combined museum display within Thoresby Courtyard, in partnership with The Stonebridge Trust.

The museum gives a fascinating insight into how the Yeomanry was raised in Nottinghamshire with the help of the great families of the country, including the Pierreponts, to help maintain law and order at a time when England was governed by the landed gentry. The Pierreponts lived in Thoresby Hall, so it is most fitting that the news museum should find its home within the Thoresby Estate.

The Queen's Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum tells the story of cavalry in the British Army, from the days of the horseback charge , through the great tank battles of the Second World War, to present day operation in Iraq and Afganistan.

The museum is open 1 March - 30 November
Wednesday to Sunday including Bank Holidays 10.30am - 4.30pm (last entry 4pm)

Entry to the museum is free.
