“Royal Armouries”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Well worth a visit and plan to spend at least 2 or 3 hours if you want to see all it has to offer. Try and catch some of the talks/presentations while you are there and the jousting is a must especially if you have children

“Amazing for kids, but not for toddlers”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Amazing, massive, expansive and great value, providing you can get there - its the one minor issue, its sort of away from free parking, out of the city centre and well ... its a trek from most places ...

It is however spectacular and rich in swords, armour, guns and well pretty as the name suggests ... it demonstrates the historic place of weaponry as works of art.

Well worth a trip on its own, or as part of a visit to Leeds.

“Armouries response”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Always worthy of a visit - you never know what may have changed and on the basis that entry is free although side attractions may need to be paid for what more would anyone want.

“Great bit of FREE History!!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

The Royal Armouries is great - even better now that it's free!

Always things to see and do (despite the fact there's no more jousting or falconry) but plenty of workshops, stories to be told, other things to see and to take part in......
