Royal Armouries, Fort Nelson [Military]

“This imposing Victorian fort is home to the Royal Armouries national collection of artillery – The Big Guns.”

“The Royal Armouries collection online is currently undergoing redevelopment and is not available to the public. We hope to launch our new collections search in 2016.”
“The Royal Armouries collection consists of some 70,000 examples of arms, armour, and artillery dating from antiquity to the present day. It includes royal armour of the Tudor and Stuart kings; arms and armour of the English Civil Wars, including the Armoury from Littlecote House; British and foreign military weapons from the Board of Ordnance and MOD Pattern Room collections; hunting and sporting weapons; as well as an exceptional collection of oriental arms and armour.”
