About Royal Arsenal Tours
There is evidence of a settlement at Royal Arsenal since the Roman era. The site has a rich military heritage and great social stories to tell. The Royal Regiment of Artillery and Arsenal Football Club can both trace their origins from Royal Arsenal. It is linked to the Suffrage movement and the Multiculturalism of Britain. There is also a rich vein of Ghosts that inhabit the war factories.

Very informative and knowledgable about the history of the Royal Woolwich Arsenal. We could ask questions at anytime without feeling embarrassed.

This was a guided tour on a Saturday of the historic Royal Arsenal site. Some great stories and insight, without too much walking, and with handy illustration packs - all very Covid safe too! Guide was excellent - just the right balance between information and engagement, happy to take questions throughout. Would definitely return to do again or with one of their other tours.

The event was Women of the Royal Arsenal Walking Tour and Richard and Sarah were excellent guides. We all learnt so much of the history of the Royal Arsenal, walking around looking at these beautiful buildings coupled with the skilful story telling of what went on there during the wars and in particular of the brave women who worked there, truly inspirational. Finishing at the Taproom for a drink after made an excellent night.

Richie and Sarah managed to combine all 3 of my interests in a single tour: military history, beer and rugby - our tour finished just in time to watch Italy v England on the big screen in The Taproom, enjoying a selection of their finest beers. What a perfect way to spend a Sunday! Such a shame that Firepower has closed.

A great tour of a wonderful site. Richard is extremely knowledgeable and created a friendly atmosphere from the beginning when we all met at the Tap House. Interesting and fun - with a lot of serious information about a place that has played such an important role in the history of London and of England. I can thoroughly recommend it
