Dressed for Battle – Arms & Armour at the Castle

Buy Tickets Share
Wednesday 1 November - Sunday 1 July

Come face to face with the imposing sight of a full suit of armour.

Imagine the clash of steel in combat and sport and be awed by these lethal weapons from times gone by.  Visitors can view a selection of real arms and armour from Tudor to Victorian times, imagine the warriors and soldiers who would have worn and used these arms and armour and got themselves "dressed to kill".

Visitors to the Victorian Prison can see new displays of the Heritage Service collection of arms and armour.  The objects on display take a thematic look at elements of the collection, and include three suits of 16th Century armour, horse armour, armour from the English Civil War, bladed weapons and finally a variety of armour.

Annual Passes, All Inclusive, Prison & Magna Carta, Castle and Cathedral Joint tickets are valid for this event.

This exhibition is running from 1st November 2017 - 1st July 2018 and is based within the Victorian Prison.
