After a good wander around the grounds we went to visit the museums. The first museum we got to was the Armstrong & Aviation museum, which houses some of the stuff that Armstrong produced for WW2, and some stuff from WW1.
I’m sorry to say I didn’t take notes or many photo’s in this museum, I’m not sure why it didn’t float my boat, however there was a really nice vintage car that I liked.
We also visited the Archaeology Museum and saw some nice bling that they had dug up. The pieces were incredibly small, but beautifully decorated, and they were covered by a magnifying glass so you could see the detail. Not easy to shoot through 2 layers of glass so not the best shots ever, but you can see what I mean.
There is also a Stones museum which we looked into.
An anglo-saxon well can also be seen there.
Of course the castle rooms are all home to interesting bits of history
There’s a nice little keepsake of Queen Mary’s signature from a vist she made there in 1924
Stay tooned for part 3 when we visit the state rooms.
