Find out about the arms and armour that a knight would use to stay alive, meet our battlefield medic who is on hand to advise on how to deal with battlefield mishaps and younger visitors can join our Knight School and learn how to dress, behave and fight like a knight!

Medieval Sword Master
21st – 25th October & 28th October – 1st November

Our medieval Sword Master will be welcoming visitors into the world of medieval combat by sharing tips of his trade and teaching the ways of the medieval warrior.


Throughout our October Half Term events, visitors can stop off at our craft station and get creative – with portraits to colour, crowns to decorate and shields to create, there is lots to keep younger visitors busy.

All our October Half Term events and craft activities are included in the price of admission to the Visitor Centre and, once paid for, our tickets can be used for unlimited visits for a whole year.
