The majestic artefacts of the British and Russian courts over 500 years.

This exhibition is a study in diplomacy, analysing the development of cordial relations between England and Russia from the time of Henry VIII and Ivan the Terrible to the end of the Romanov dynasty.

On display are over 150 gifts that passed between the two nations, including jewels, armour, paintings and heraldry that kept relations civil, even during immense upheaval, for 500 years.
