History

The original barracks, known as Clewer Barracks, were designed to accommodate the Royal Horse Guards and were built at Clewer Park between 1796 and 1800. Queen Victoria ordered the replacement of the barracks after a personal visit in 1864 exposed to her its unhygienic conditions. The new barracks, which expand over 20 acres were named after Field Marshal Lord Combermere, and include a riding school which was built in 1881. The barracks were brought up to date in 2006 and remain the home of the Household Cavalry Regiment.
