Permanent Exhibitions

Gallery One
In this gallery you will discover how our three ancestor regiments began life in the late 1600s,  how they developed and began to make a name for themselves, both at home and abroad.

Gallery Two
Here, we show our temporary exhibitions in addition to the campaign medals awarded to soldiers of our regiments during their history. Three stories of men of the regiments are told alongside the medals they were awarded.

Gallery Three
In this gallery you will be introduced to the story of the Scots Greys at the Battle of Waterloo, 18th June 1815. The modern regiment’s greatest treasure, the ‘Eagle’ of the French 45th Infantry Regiment that was captured at the battle by Sergeant Charles Ewart of the Greys, can be seen alongside the regimental standard it accompanied. As you progress through the gallery, you will discover the three regiments’ activities in the 19th century, as well as the connection of Tsar Nicholas II with the Royal Scots Greys.

Gallery Four
Here we focus on the 20th century, illustrating the roles that the three regiments played in both World Wars. This is accompanied by the story of music in our regiments together with that of some regimental personalities, such as the explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Field Marshals Sir William Robertson and Sir John Stanier, both of whom became Chiefs of the General Staff.

“Four galleries, over 300 years cavalry service.”

Temporary Exhibitions

Our current temporary exhibition is ‘Waterloo 200’: The Scots Greys and the Battle of Waterloo.

The background to the battle is discussed, as is the role played on that day by the Scots Greys: personal accounts, some of which have never before been published, are used.

In addition, paintings which illuminate the role of the Greys at the Battle are exhibited.
