Set in 170 acres of extraordinary landscape and unique buildings, this is a fascinating place for all, and at such a price there has never been a better time to explore!

For adult visitors, the Royal Gunpowder Mills has over 300 years of history to explore. There is the acclaimed Armoury with a comprehensive collection of firearms from the Civil War onwards, and the Rocket Vault - both with enthusiastic guides at hand, some who worked here when it was a top secret research establishment.

For a nominal fee, take the Land Train tour with experienced guides taking you to hidden parts of the site, a Scheduled Monument and an SSSI, rich in history and diversity of wildlife habitats. Watch out for deer and other wildlife!  And throughout the day the Gunpowder Café serves great food. .
