The Queen's Royal Lancers & Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum was
opened by HRH Princess Alexandra
on Tuesday 26th July 2011.
The museum displays the historic collections of The Queen's Royal
Lancers, the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry and the South Nottinghamshire Hussars.
The Queen's Royal Lancers and The Nottinghamshire Yeomanry, which is made
up of The Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry and The South Nottinghamshire Hussars,
have amalgamated their collections to create a combined museum within Thoresby
Courtyard, in partnership with The Stonebridge Trust.
Receiving more than 1,000 visitors a week following the opening ceremony, the museum tells
the human, social and military history of the regiments and the ongoing story of the British Army today.
A unique collection of arms, uniforms, medals, silver and paintings illustrate the role that the local
Regiments have played in the great battles of the last three centuries and, indeed continue to play in
international conflicts of the present day.
Our new museum offering a fascinating 'ride' through the history of the British cavalry, and is complimented by the Courtyard retail outlets and cafe. Thoresby offers a thrilling day out for all. We hope to see you soon.
