Raby Castle has played an important part in history for over 600 years. Home to Cecily Nevill, mother of two medieval kings of England, Raby Castle was also the scene of the plotting of the Rising of the North in 1569 and a Parliamentary stronghold during the Civil War.
With a 200 acre Park, beautiful Walled Gardens and a Woodland Play Area there’s plenty to see and do in addition to the Castle.
We want to share Raby Castle and its beautiful surroundings with as many people as possible and this event is specifically designed to help teachers discover what we can offer their school.
Our Children’s Tours are a perfect educational resource for many aspects included in Key Stages 1 and 2 of the National Curriculum. The Open Afternoon will be a chance to see how we make history come to life and support students’ learning in a fun and engaging way.
Did you know we also accept School Groups at High Force Waterfall? There’s plenty of coach parking, toilets and a well maintained path to the Waterfall. It’s a great place to witness the power of nature and learn about the landscape. We’ll have someone on hand during the Open Afternoon to answer any questions about High Force too.
The Open Afternoon will run from 2pm to 4pm on Monday 8th July and will start with the Children’s Castle Tour. Tea and coffee will be served in the Grand Entrance Hall after the Tour.
This event is by invitation only but if you have not received an invitation and would like to attend please contact email@example.com
