Attraction details
Owner description: The Museum tells the fascinating story of four of the British army's most famous regiments. This long history, dating back to the 1680s, is told through many kinds of objects including uniforms, medals, weapons and models. The regiments have seen action in many prominent events, including the British campaign in South Africa (visit us and discover what really happened in the 1879 Zulu War!), And both world wars. Forty-three of the regiments' soldiers have received the Victoria Cross, and we commemorate their sacrifice and heroism as well as that of all the men and women associated with our regiments who have contributed so much to our country.

I am not really into war history but this museum is well worth a visit, it covers many wars, zulu, world war 1 and 2 etc and is very interesting.

A most interesting museum, if you like this sort of thing. Great on a wet day.

We decided to visit the museum due to the bad weather, and needed somewhere indoors.
I am glad that we did , for an entrance fee of £4 we spent a delightful couple of hours browsing the many exhibits including the 7 VC's won at Rourkes Drift.
A mention for the staff who were very friendly accommodating and welcoming.
If you enjoy a bit of history or have a military interest this place is well worth a visit.

This is a small but well set out museum. Plenty of historical detail of battles won and lost. Plenty of facts and stories that you probably would not be aware of. Extensive weaponary collection. A must for those interested in our history.
