The Hyde Park and Regent’s Park bombings occurred on 20 July 1982 in London, United Kingdom. Members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) detonated two bombs during British military ceremonies in Hyde Park and Regent’s Park, both located in central London.
The explosions killed a total of 11 military personnel: four soldiers of the Blues & Royals and seven bandsmen of the Royal Green Jackets. Seven of the Blues & Royals’ horses also died in the attack. One seriously injured horse, Sefton, survived and was subsequently featured on many television programmes and was awarded “Horse of the Year”.
