Welcome to Britainís National Fencing Museum, which traces the history of the sport of fencing over 450 years. The museum houses a library of over 300 books, 250 paintings and prints, 200 weapons, numerous masks, kit, trophies, posters, programmes, medals, stamps, postcards and other ephemera. It provides a glimpse into the past: to a time when the art of fencing was an elegant accomplishment, an essential part of a gentlemanís education and beyond to the days when a knowledge of the science of defence could mean the difference between life and death.
