One of the best military museums I have visited, well worth the money. You will leave with the knowledge on how well the local regiment done in past conflicts.

Though small, this museum is laid out very well, with a logical progression from the earliest days of the Regiment up to the present day in the display on the first floor. There are some very interesting and thought provoking displays of weapons and equipment...More

A nice leisurely look around the museum and looking at the war through the years, we parked in their forecourt although this is not really permitted and you must tell them you have parked there. The tea rooms next door are a must.

A very interesting museum with excellent exhibits of the Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiments known latterly as The Rifles. Only small but packed with interest. Very well exhibited.
