Education services



It’s time to get your pupils out of the classroom for a unique and memorable learning experience at the Royal Armouries.

Tailored to meet the demands of the new history curriculum, our sessions will enhance the study of key periods and chronology.

Many of the old favourites such as the Tudors, English Civil Wars, and trench warfare are still available, but we have introduced several exciting new sessions for key stages 1–3 and study days for GCSE History students.

We have designed our sessions to provide a more interactive and hands-on experience for pupils, allowing history to come life in an exciting and meaningful way.

Sessions will take place in our dedicated education centres and in the museum galleries amongst the collection pieces.

We look forward to welcoming you and your students.

Palmerston's Follies

Fort Nelson is one of the ‘Palmerston Forts’, commissioned in the 1860s by Lord Palmerston, who feared a French attack. By the time they were completed, however, any threat from France disappeared. The forts gained the nickname ‘Palmerston’s follies’.
