Royal Armouries Museum

The home of much of the national collection of arms and armour and free to enter. There are over 5 floors of galleries and exhibitions in a stylish modern building, featuring Warfare, Tournament, Self-Defence, Hunting, and the Arms and Armour of the Orient. The collection comes to life with falcony and jousting shows, a chance to see the birds and horses, talks by costumed guides throughout the day, and a gunmaker, armourer and wardrobe mistress at work in the craft court. The museum is just a 10-minute walk from Leeds City Bus Station - follow the finger signs.
