Attraction Information

Learn about swords and armour from around the world and make sure you catch one of the displays of jousting, falconry and horsemanship, all at the Royal Armouries Museum.

Uncover the secrets of the past, while listening to one of the many daily character talks at this magical museum. After, get ready to explore over 2,500 objects on display in 6 galleries: War; Peace; Tournaments; Oriental; Self Defence and Hunting. Guaranteed to get the little one's imaginations running!

You can also admire 5 magnificent swords, inspired by specific weapons featured in Middle Earth literature! Step right into a medieval tale as you load up at the Crossbow Range, which can also be used by your little Knights and Princesses to try their hand at Archery! Who will hit the bullseye first? Make sure you catch a jousting show in the Tiltyard with realistic costumes, beautiful horses and amazing attention to historical accuracy and detail. Hurrah!
