Things to see & do

The Royal Armouries in Leeds is home to the national collection of arms and armour. Admission is free.

Explore over 8,500 objects from across the world throughout six themed galleries.

Learn more about the objects, their use, and the people behind them in our entertaining daily talks. Catch live shows in our outdoor Tiltyard.

Visitors can have a go at firing a crossbow at our crossbow range, and for our younger visitors we have Jester’s Yard, a special play area for dressing up, exploring, and making.
