Take a trip back in time to the Hundred Years War, as the Tower of London marks the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.

The crucial battle in October 1415 defined the outcome of the Hundred Years War (1337 to 1453) against France. Presented by the Royal Armouries, this fascinating exhibition features a number of rare historic items and iconic objects that tell the brutal story of the deadly encounter.

Witness the chaos and scale of the battle through a detailed diorama of the battlefield, featuring 4,000 painted scale-model figures. Get up close to significant examples of medieval archery equipment, including longbows and arrows from the Mary Rose Trust, which expose the devastating use of English archers to secure victory; and discover the cutting-edge equipment of the day that protected men-at-arms and their mounts, including the Lyle basinet and Warwick Shaffron.

A series of talks, demonstrations and family activities will run alongside the exhibition, providing a more immersive experience of the battle.
