We remember the big and the bold but sometimes the items that stay longest with us are the oddly personal or just plain odd. Follow us for a tour of our favourite odd items.

We have a remarkable collection of items relating to Nelson. Yes of course we have fine paintings and uniforms but you may also be surprised to find a mask of his face, his monogrammed high socks, the saw that cut off his arm (or one much like it) and a lock of his hair for his mistress to remember him by.

But it is not just Nelson who features in this off-the-beaten-track tour. Another lock of hair belongs to one of the mutineers from the Bounty, we have a rare 'scare devil' from the Nicobar Islands, snow goggles taken from a frozen skeleton and an opium pipe. Welcome to the weird and wonderful tour.
