The barracks at The Keep, Lostwithiel Road (a 5-minute walk from Bodmin town centre) was once home to the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry and is now a military museum. The barracks were built in 1925 and the former Regimental HQ now houses the museum. It contains a series of highly informative exhibits illustrating the various campaigns undertaken throughout the regiments history. In addition their are well displayed collections of uniforms and medals as well as a comprehensive collection of armaments.
The campaign exhibitions are especially interesting as they really bring some little-known historical facts to life. A personal favourite is the tale of Fox's Marines and how they took Gibraltar.
Check the Cornwall's Regimental Museum website for opening times and combination offers when visiting the museum and the Bodmin and Wenford Railway.
