York Army Museum Tours

The York Army Museum takes visitors on a journey through history, following Yorkshire's historic cavalry and infantry regiments—The Royal Dragoon Guards and The Yorkshire Regiment—from 1685 to the present day. Recently reopened after a £1 million renovation, the small museum is a fitting tribute to the British Army, and now ranks among the most impressive military museums in the UK.

Visitors can learn more about the regiments and their soldiers through a series of interactive exhibits, audio-visual displays, and a collection of artifacts dating back more than 300 years. Highlights include a sizable display of army memorabilia, including weaponry, uniforms, medals, and photographs; personal accounts from serving soldiers and army personnel; and a dress up area for kids to try on the army uniforms.

Insider Tip: The best time to visit the museum is during school holiday periods, when expert guides are on-hand to demonstrate the different weapons, uniforms, and combat gear.
