Royal Armouries

The Royal Armouries Museum, home to the national collection of arms and armour, is Britain's oldest museum.

One of the ancient institutions of the Tower of London, its origins can be traced back to the working armoury of the medieval kings of England. The royal armours of Henry VIII, Charles I, Charles II and James II form the heart of the collection and are among its greatest treasures. Please note, there is an entry charge for the Tower of London, but no additional charge for the Armouries.
