You will never see so many Victoria Crosses together again.

If you have seen Zulu and enjoyed the story even how old it is, visit this place. I have been there... read more

Went to the Regimental Museum of The Royal Welsh...my Grampy was captured by the Germans in 1914... what a BRILLIANT museum! Loads to see...over 20 VCs a "diorama" (I think) of the Battle of Rorks Drift (11 VCs) and just everything you need to learn the History of the Regiment. AND the Staff go out of their way to be helpful... a Great Day

If you have seen Zulu and enjoyed the story even how old it is, visit this place. I have been there 3 times and even took my wife back on a 4th visit. The Information on the four regiments and the amount of medals on display is outstanding. As you walk into the main hall you are met with Pte Henry Hook who was portrayed as a malingerer and a drinker in the film, but he was a tea total. Please visit this treasure as it is something that you will never forget.

A fantastic museum charting the history of the Borderers. On this second visit, I learned more about the history, and the impact of wars on the soldiers. Well-stocked with a huge range of artefacts covering all eras.

A visit to this museum is a must. The curator has and amazing amount of knowledge. The items on display are fascinating and not just because of the file Zulu.

I am not really in to regimental museums but I did find this one interesting and learnt a lot about the Zulu War, which I only had a hazy idea about courtesy of the film. It's a small area but a lot is packed into it which can result in overload. The guide was welcoming and friendly.

It has been updated and is worth a visit. Parking outside. Plenty of places to eat close by. We found my grandfather's name which was interesting.

I thought £5 a head was a bit steep at first but when inside I saw why this museum needs to be kept up. Small but packed with history, this museum went through the regiments history, including the Zulu wars, especially the Battle of Rourke's Drift.
Sobering accounts of acts of heroism in the two World Wars and the tragedy of the trenches and the Gallipoli campaign.
Some wonderful memorabilia, uniforms, weapons and innumerable medals.
Worth an hour of anyone's time.
