Knight & princess academy at Bodiam Castle

Budding knights and aspiring princesses can be put through their paces at our Academy this summer.

Summer adventure at the castle

Children aged 5 - 12 can enjoy the opportunity to dress in armour or flowing dresses and learn some of the skills that would have been necessary for any budding knight or aspiring princess.

Come along to Bodiam Castle and watch as your little ones take their first steps back into medieval England to a time of daring and chivalry.  Follow them as they complete our training and finally reach their graduation and receive their certificate and prize.
