Went for our Christmas do on 19th December had a lovely evening, food and disco good and serving staff very courteous and helpful.
Wow, 5 floors of wonder for the study of arms, swords, metal work, history, warfare, textiles, battles, hunting, target shooting, bows & a whole host more. We had 4 hours but could have stayed a further 4 hours with ease.
My son and I visited the Armouries in order for him to gain resource materials for his Art A Level. We found everything he needed together with helpful friendly staff. As a museum-shy 17 yr old, he was amazed by the building and the exhibits & would certainly return again.
Wide range of interesting features and special exhibitions to see. When we visited there was a photographic exhibition and visits by storm troopers, Darth Vader, Batman, Indiana Jones and others. Not just about weapons. Good cafe.

I believe that... More
If you are into armour, swords & military stuff this place is a very impressive collection. Free to enter, the place is stuffed full of exhibits from all over the world. You could easily spend a whole day here.
this is an amazing place to explore, you need a few hours as the exhibits are fantastic and there are also interactive activities. you need a few hours to get around to see all the exhibits but it is well worth it as well as being free to get in. There is a cafe to buy food as well as... More
