The College of Arms is the official heraldic authority for England, Wales, Northern Ireland and much of the Commonwealth. As well as being responsible for the granting of new coats of arms, the college maintains registers of arms, pedigrees, genealogies, Royal Licences, changes of name, and flags. The heralds (its officers), besides having ceremonial duties, advise on such matters as peerage and ceremonial or state occasions. During this visit to the college, Timothy Duke, the Norroy and Ulster King of Arms, offers a brief history of the building and the origins of heralds and heraldry and shows a range of heraldic and genealogical manuscripts.

Please note that the premises are unfortunately not suitable for wheelchair users.
