Not in London, but close enough to peek my interest at least, and looks interesting in several areas… the Army’s Officer training academy in Sandhurt is having an open day next month – and conveniently on a Sunday.

Not just for the displays of military prowess, but the architecture and heritage is rather impressive.

To give it a dose of London relevance though, Sandhurst was formed from the merger of the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich and the Royal Military College at Sandhurst.

Hopefully, any helicopters that might be there wont scare the locals as the recent open evening at the H.A.C. did to Shoreditch residents who didn’t realise there was an Army barracks in their midst!

Entry is Free

From the official blurb…

Open on Sunday 19th June 11.00am – 4.30pm (Gates open at 10.30am – Last entry is at 3.30pm)

No pets allowed.

Visit – Old College Prestige Rooms, The Royal Memorial Chapel, The Central Library and individual stands of military displays through the ages.

Explore – The Academy’s impressive grounds.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    No pets allowed. They will scare the wildlife?
