The Museum showcases the service to sovereign and country from 1743 to the present day of the men of Berkshire and Wiltshire, with highlights of the actions of the regiments and individuals. Throughout there are illustrations of great bravery, valour and sometimes heroism, this is the story of the infantryman from the Seven Years War to the present day.
In 2022 there will be a special exhibition on Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who was Colonel-in-Chief of The Wiltshire Regiment, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Royal Regiment, Th Royal Gloucester, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment and more recently The Rifles. He stepped down in July 2020, to be replaced by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. During his time as Colonel-in-Chief, Prince Philip took a great interest in the regiments and soldiers who served under his name; the exhibition will commemorate that relationship.
Afterwards why not visit The Rifleman’s Table Restaurant, housed in a restored 16th century coach house, for a lunch of home-cooked food or for coffee or tea and cakes, or picnic in our gardens
