History comes to life when you join our Friendly Footman for a special interactive Children’s Tour of the Castle which has been host to knights, royalty and aristocracy through the ages.

Find out what it was like to be knighted and how the Castle was defended from enemy attack. There is so much to learn and plenty to see.

Children’s Tours will run on selected dates throughout July and August. Tours begin at 10:30am in the Coach Yard and are included with a Castle, Park and Gardens ticket.
