The Queen’s Royal Lancers & Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum
Tracing the history of three old and famous cavalry Regiments: The Queen’s Royal Lancers, The Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry and The South Nottinghamshire Hussars, the museum, opened on 26 July 2011 by HRH Princess Alexandra and is located in the courtyard at Thoresby Park in North Nottinghamshire.
The three Regiments have amalgamated their collections to create a combined museum within Thoresby Courtyard, in partnership with The Stonebridge Trust. The museum tells the human, social and military history of the regiments and the story of the British cavalry from the days of the horseback charge, through the great tank battles of the Second World War, to present-day operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
