Projects / Crown Jewel House

Constructed in the 1960’s, the old Jewel House was designed to cope with a peak of 5,000 visitors per day. However, visitor numbers had risen to exceed 15,000 a day, leading to extensive queuing times and a less than satisfactory experience. The display was completely re-designed, expanded, and moved to occupy the whole of the ground floor of the Waterloo Barracks. At the same time, the remainder of the Waterloo Barracks was completely renovated and refurbished to provide new administrative accommodation.
