Princess Caroline’s Battery & Military Heritage Centre

The Military Heritage Centre is housed at Princess Caroline’s Battery, a former artillery battery constructed in 1732 and named after the third daughter of King George II.

The battery saw action during the Great Siege of Gibraltar and required repairs. In 1871, the battery featured a 9-inch rifled muzzle loading gun, with an Elswick Ordnance Company carriage and platform. In 1905, the battery was refurbished to accommodate a 6-inch Mark VII gun that was installed on top of the magazine.

The Heritage Centre itself houses relics that date from the eighteenth century to present day, including weapons, shells, and other artefacts.
