Tournament gallery

The Tournament Gallery introduces the contests in which knights and kings once competed.

The gallery showcases the spectacular and outlandish arms and armours that were worn and used in the Tournament.

Don’t miss Henry VIII’s incredible Foot Combat Armour (designed to completely cover the entire body), the intricately decorated Lion Armour, or the extraordinary Horned Helmet.
