Daytime Walk and Talks 

The knowledgeable staff of The Guards Museum are able to give you that personal walk and talk. These talk are only available during daytime opening hours 10am-4pm Monday to Friday.

We cater for groups of between 10 and 30 individuals, at a cost of £10.00 per head. For an extra £2.50 each you can have tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival.
