The tour included a visit to the Great Hall and Armoury in the main castle. In the Great Hall they learnt that the space would have been used for huge banquets and entertainment. Also they found out that the servants may have slept in there!
In the Armoury the children were told all about the different types of swords and spears that the soldiers would have used. They also had a good look at the Knights armour.
The children were also taken to the older part of the castle. Here they saw the Chapel, the Lady in Waiting room and the Keep. The narrow spiral staircases were a little challenging for some but it was well worth the effort when they eventually reached the top!
During the day each group spent some time in the Education room. Here they found out more about the clothes people would have worn and the weapons that were used. Each child was invited to dress up either as a Jester, Archer, Servant or a Knight.
The children were all fantastic and everyone had a wonderful day!
