The Royal Armouries is home to a world-renowned collection of arms and armour.
Starting out as the main Royal and National arsenal housed in the Tower of London, the collection has grown to include objects from around the world. Since 2005, we have also managed the national collection of firearms, started in 1631 by Charles I and assembled by the British Army.
Our image library contains around 20,000 images of arms, armour dating from ancient times to the present day. We offer a range of high-quality digital images, films, and sound, suitable for reproduction to illustrate your film and TV productions, publications, websites, DVDs and games.
New digital photography can also be commissioned directly, and our dedicated Licensing team also offer picture research services.
