Medieval character talks
During February and March join our medieval characters in the castle for a chat about food and drink. Talks are on an informal basis during the week but given as hourly presentations at weekends, but you're sure to discover some interesting facts about what it was like to live in this magnificent castle back in 1385.
Wrap up warmly, but if you still find it a bit chilly, then we've made some lovely warm cloaks for you to borrow to keep out the keen winds of late winter and early spring.
