Britain’s oldest museum has grown from its origins as the main royal and national arsenal at the Tower of London into a family of four museums located throughout the United Kingdom and in North America.

The Royal Armouries is Britain’s national museum of arms and armour.

At the Leeds Museum there are over 8,500 objects on display in five galleries: War; Tournament; Oriental; Self Defence and Hunting.

Visit the newly refurbished Tournament Gallery and experience the might of Henry VIII – king and sportsman.
