Kent & Sharpshooters Yeomanry Museum

Hever Castle, Hever, Edenbridge, TN8 7NG

The museum follows the history of the regiments from 1794, when the Kent Yeomanry was formed by part time volunteers to defend against possible invasion by the French. Our displays then take the visitor through the 19th century, the Boer War (when the Sharpshooters were formed), the two world wars, and modern times. Four interactive touch screens complement the physical displays, bringing to life many fascinating life stories of people who served in the regiment, and also providing a showcase for school projects. Noball the female desert fox is there as a cartoon guide for younger visitors.
Our physical displays include medals, uniforms, weaponry, and other militaria. We have walk-in reconstructions of a WW1 Gallipoli trench, and the interior of a WW2 Cromwell tank turret. A Saladin armoured car and a 25lb Field Gun stand guard outside the museum. A registry area enables visitors to explore the names of over 14000 who have served with us.
