THE ROYAL HAMPSHIRE REGIMENT MUSEUM
The Museum of the County Regiment for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight – Serving the Crown for nearly 300 years.
We are situated on the ground floor of Serle’s House (a lovely Georgian Building set back behind an ornate rose garden), on Southgate Street next to the Hotel du Vin, about 150 metres from the High Street in Winchester.
The Museum of the Royal Hampshire Regiment tells the story of the county infantry regiment for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. It traces its history back to 1702 when it was formed as Meredith’s Own, until its amalgamation with the Queen’s Regiment in 1992 to form the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (Queens and Royal Hampshires).
With the help of a grant in 2014 from the Heritage Lottery Fund we completely refurbished the museum. There are now touch screen computers and films showing throughout the museum to provide you with more information should you need it.
