Leeds Royal Armouries

Experience the excitement of reliving some of the most important moments from early history to the present day, with costumed demonstrations, authentic re-enactments, entertaining films and interactive technology.
From April to October there are regular jousting tournaments, and you can get close to the falcons and horses that are part of the pageant. You may prefer to witness swashbuckling pirates, or Joan of Arc rallying her troops.

There are over 8,000 exhibits to see, and some you can touch, in five themed galleries: War, Tournament, Oriental, Hunting and Self Defence. Discover what it was like to hold a 15th century poleaxe or a powder-firing musket, and take a good  look at the armour Henry VIII actually wore.

The Royal Armouries Museum spans 3,000 years of history – and is still relevant to the issues of power and conflict we live with today. Come along with the whole family, for a truly memorable, fun-packed day out.
