A tour of military excellence
Oct 2019
This huge site is full of courage and history. Our group had a guided tour of part of the college and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guides were very knowledgeable and encouraged questions. The entry requirements for cadets and the work they undertake was explained fully. We saw some amazing rooms and exhibits. In all the tour took 3 hrs and was well worth the £30 fee.

Amazed by the size of the place
Oct 2019
What a wonderful place full of military history. Fortunate to be invited to a reunion at the Military Academy and shown around the museum section and then attend an organ recital in the chapel. The grounds are extensive and impressive. If I lived nearby and there was an open day I would not miss the opportunity to visit.

I was privileged to visit the Sandhurst Military Academy. State of the art building. What few know that a tour for a small payment is possible. Recommended when you are in Cranberry, Surrey....

A good event let down by lack of information
Jun 2019
It may have been free in 2018, but this year entrance was £5, which we thought was a bit steep.

Our day's fun was greatly reduced by the fact that there was no timetable or any indication of what was going on when.

We planned our afternoon as much as possible but as we entered the main building to look round, at an hour and a half before closing time, as we understood it, we were told the building was closing in 5 minutes. Extremely disappointing.

The displays and food on offer were pretty typical for this sort of event, and good. Just a shame they couldn't have managed a timetable.

Open day for Father's day
Jun 2019 • Family
Luckily the weather came out OK for the event which was lucky. There was a £5 charge for parking this year which seemed reasonable.

We first went to the Ghurka Curry tent. The curry was £5 a person or £3 for a vegan one. Once you have got your ticket you could then help yourself to curry and rice as well as salad. It was delicious and we all really enjoyed it.

Then it was time to walk around and look at the various stalls as well as the many vehicles that were on display there. While walking around we could at times here the Bands playing and that was very good.

There was a helicopter that children could climb in and a Scammell Truck owner who very kindly let children go up in his truck. Our Grandchildren were thrilled to be able to go into such a large truck.

The lake is a beautiful setting for photos and picnics too.

Thank you to all who were involved it made a great day out for all the family.

Sovereigns Parade
Dec 2018 • Friends
It was an honour to have been part of this event. Prince William was the guest of honour. I did however get to walk the grounds and get a feel of the place. Well mannered all around. On the day of the parade we were escourted to the main event in a mini bus. Unfortunately this bus was missing in action for the return trip. Two youngsters permanently based at the grounds gave us a lift to the main gate. For this we were hugely grateful.

A special place
Nov 2018
Sandhurst has been the Royal Military Academy since its founding in 1812. There are several magnificent buildings -- the Old College in particular. The New College is also a nice building but unfortunately the more modern buildings are brutalist concrete pillar looking things.
The ponds were dug by French POWs from Napoleonic times.

Sons Passout Parade

Arrived on a beautiful sunny summers morning, the reception staff at the main gate were very considerate and welcoming. This is British Forces at its best. Excellent parade from the newly commissioned officers and inspiring speeches from the reviewing officer. Extensive beautifully maintained grounds surrounding a tranquil lake. A wonderful day out surrounded by proud parents and families. The Gurka band was brilliant. Overall a very impressive visit to a wonderful facility.

Heritage day
Jun 2018 • Family
Always a brilliant day out going to the RMA. We live at the back so hear them all the time and it’s great to show the kids the soldiers and officers. We always recommend it to other families and this year I was able to take my 82 year old nan for the first time. She bought a book on
from one of the vintage stalls about land girls in ww2 and she said it’s a great read. Thanks again for opening the doors to the public.
