National Civil War Centre

A visit to the National Civil War Centre will plunge you deep into the heart of Britain’s deadliest conflict.

Explore this richly dramatic era in British history, seeing stories of gunpowder, plague and plot as you walk through our fantastic galleries.
Discover for yourself the clash between Roundhead and Royalist, brother and brother, and learn how a once all-powerful monarch lost his head to the axeman.
With real objects, digital interactives and costumes and armour for all to try, as well as a large screen cinema, the National Civil War Centre makes a great day out.
