Overview

The Museum tells the fascinating story of four of the British army's most famous regiments. This long history, dating back to the 1680s, is told through many kinds of objects including uniforms, medals, weapons and models. The regiments have seen action in many prominent events, including the British campaign in South Africa (visit us and discover what really happened in the 1879 Zulu War!), And both world wars. Forty-three of the regiments' soldiers have received the Victoria Cross, and we commemorate their sacrifice and heroism as well as that of all the men and women associated with our regiments who have contributed so much to our country.

Spent a couple of hours in the museum, it was very well put together, plenty about the Zulu war as one would expect, it made for a good afternoon visit.

This must be a prime candidate for lottery funding to take the amazing collection and display properly in the late 2010's. The location is really cramped and as such the displays are very overpowering when you have so much to take in. Over 40 medal...More

Very interesting. Staff helpful. Could do with a sort out and get exhibits in chronological order with some up to date (printed) signage. £5 pp entrance fee a little bit much, given size of museum

A Regimental museum with a pride. A welshness, that is steeped in our great nations history. Something for everyone with a thirst or desire for knowledge.
