Visit the National Army Museum

The National Army Museum, beside the Royal Hospital Chelsea, is the central museum of the British Army. It charts the history of the British Army from the Norman Conquest to present day.

The most interesting sections are those covering the Napoleonic Wars and the First and Second World Wars, including the Siborne Model of the Battle of Waterloo, a 24 by 19 ft replica of the battlefield including over 90,000 hand-painted lead soldiers.

The museum is free and is open daily, 10.00am - 5.30pm, and entry is free. The nearest tube is Sloane Square (though that is quite a distance). For more information visit the website at http://www.national-army-museum.ac.uk/.
