The Wallace Collection Armoury...

Every now and again the Baker Street Quarter (where I work) offers a lunchtime event. Last week it was a tour of The Wallace Collection Armoury.

The Armoury comprises of nearly half of all the pieces of the entire collection - despite it being more famous for its art works.

It was a fascinating tour; rare armour (for soldiers and horses), square-barrelled matchlock muskets, flint-lock pistols, canons, maces, sabres, swords, and daggers.

And entrance is free.
