February events at Bodiam Castle

Winter trees in the sunshine

Visit the castle during February and you'll discover more about Lent with our half-term trail. For the romantics, there's the chance to enjoy a candlelit supper and tour of a floodlit castle for Valentine's Day and for early risers you can join one of our Bodiam brunch walks to find out more about the castle and grounds.

Shrovetide half-term fun for the family

As the depth of winter eases, we are all looking forward to the springtime, but first there is Shrovetide and the fasting time of Lent.  In medieval England this time of year was observed with great diligence and devotion.  A time of fasting and reflection before the celebration of Easter.  Many foods were 'off the table' at this time of year including eggs.  

Visit us during half-term and have a go at our family trail to find out more about the Lent menu and discover the do's and don'ts of medieval fasting and feasts.

Our half-term fun begins on Sat 13 Feb and continues through to Sun 21 Feb and trails cost £2.50 each. For those that observe the traditions of this time of year, there'll be a prize at the end.

Enjoy the romance of the castle

The magical setting of Bodiam Castle is perfect for Valentine's Day.  This year we're offering two dates for you to impress your Valentine with a romantic evening here at the castle.  Join one of our costumed guides for a talk in the floodlit castle whilst you sip on a glass of champagne before you stroll down through the grounds to our Terrace Room.  A 3-course candlelit supper will await you and your loved one to complete your special evening out.

Our Valentine's Evenings will be held on Fri 12 & Sat 13 February, and early booking is advised for this popular event.  To secure your place, please call 01580 831324.  This event is suitable for adults only.
