October half-term fun
There's lots going on this October half-term including Meet the Builder's day on Tuesday 23 October and a trail around the garden.
This half-term you could take part in the Saving Castle Drogo trail which runs from Saturday 20 October until Sunday 28 October (£1, includes a prize). The trail is all about the building work at the castle and what has been done to finally make it watertight.
Or children can get their hands dirty by taking part in the crafty castle capers activity on Thursday 25 October, 11am-4pm. (A small charge applies).
Or on Tuesday 23 October, 11am-4pm join us for Meet the Builder's day. There will be demonstrations including lime slaking, carpentry, window restoration and displays of the tools the builders would have used 100 years ago. There will also be special behind the scenes tours on the roof. (If you’d like to go on a roof tour please wear stout shoes, no shorts or skirts, no children under 16 years of age, places are first come, first serve and are £5 per person).
The trees are turning lovely colours of amber and orange, to admire the changing colours and crunchy leaves you could walk down to the river and back up to the castle.
