I think if you are ex forces you would enjoy this but it feels like they’ve got lots of items and they are all on display. It lacks the human story and could really benefit from professional intervention to help them choose key items to...More

Outstanding museum of weapons, uniforms, battles, with plenty of history to read about. Delightful gentlemen at the entrance, too. Had a nice sitting area for anyone who might be a bit tired from walking. Photos allowed.

A must to see in London. I tried to put up a video of the parade but could not. Young and old would love this.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
