A storehouse for royal clothing, arms and other personal items. Edward III moved it from the Tower of London to a house just north of what is now Queen Victoria Street. It was destroyed in the Great Fire. Initially the Wardrobe held ceremonial robes for all the royal family for state occasions, and other furnishings and robes for the King's ministers. It was then extended to include stables, courtyard, warehouse, workrooms, great hall, royal halls, chapel, treasury, kitchens and chambers.
