War gallery

Trace the changing face of battle from the days of bloody hand-to-hand combat to today’s technology based warfare in our largest gallery.

Explore the development of arms and armour from their earliest use to conflicts within living memory.

Plus new for Spring 2021 – Firefight: The Second World War. The weapons and equipment in this new display have not been shown at the Royal Armouries before. Firefight tells the story of the single most important event of the 20th century – the Second World War.
