Bertie the Bat takes a different view of the castle through the eyes of one of our residents with a castle tour, story and craft activities. £2.50 per child
Key stages 2 - 4
Our key stage 2 and 3 sessions for children over 6 include a look at life in the castle, entitled 'Help Wanted', with a chance to find out if you have what it takes to fill the many roles in the castle.
Take a look at the defences of the castle in our 'Battle Bodiam' session or book our aptly named, 'Armed and Dangerous' hands on armour activity.
All sessions cost £2.50 per child.
