Partway up Birdcage Walk, exactly where it should be, Mr Monkey found Wellington Barracks. And in a corner of the barracks, he found the Guards Museum. Here he found out all about the history of the Guards regiments, from General Monck's Coldstreamers marching to support the restoration of Charles II to the Gulf War. Mr Monkey took notes about all the hats.
You can read about the museum at the Guards Museum website.
