The Royal Armouries is Britain’s national museum of arms and armor, and it is one of the most important museums of its type in the world. Its origins lie in the Middle Ages, and at its core is the celebrated collection originating in the nation’s working arsenal, assembled over many centuries at the Tower of London. During the reign of Elizabeth I, selected items began to be arranged for display to visitors, making the Royal Armouries heir to one of the oldest deliberately created visitor attractions in the country.
This fully-updated edition of Royal Armouries Guidebook covers the five main galleries–War, Tournament, Oriental, Hunting, and Self-Defense–as well as the magnificent Hall of Steel. Packed with useful information and stunning photography, it provides a perfect introduction to the Royal Armouries collection.
