AboutThis Museum showcases the service to sovereign and country from 1743 of the men of Berkshire and Wiltshire. It highlights the actions of the regiments and individuals over the last 270 years. There are examples of muddle and confusion, of scheming, of activities that perhaps today would not be considered propitious, and also of careful planning, and strong and determined leadership. Throughout there are illustrations of great bravery, valour and sometimes heroism.
The Museum tells the story of the infantryman from the Seven Years War to the present day. On the same site Bernieres Restaurant can provide you with coffee or lunch, and the garden is a place in which to wander or to relax and eat your sandwiches.
