Detailed official guidebooks to help you navigate the Royal Armouries collection at Leeds and Fort Nelson. Also included are the official guidebooks for some of the exhibitions we acquire.
Fort Nelson was built in the 1860s, as part of a chain of fortifications protecting the great naval harbour of Portsmouth and its Royal Dockyard from a feared French invasion. It now houses the national collection of artillery, held in trust for the nation by the Royal Armouries, with over 350 big guns and historic cannon on display. This fascinating book is packed with useful information and stunning photography, and is a perfect introduction to a remarkable site.
Make the most of your visit to the museum or explore the collection from the comfort of your armchair.
