School visits at Dunster Castle

Children looking out from the Keep

Why did the Saxons build a fortress at Dunster? What was life like on the Homefront during WW2? Through a variety of indoor and outdoor sessions we bring the stories of Dunster Castle to life in ways that will inspire and entertain staff and pupils alike.

Learning sessions

Sessions are avaiable for EYFS and Reception, KS1, KS2, KS3 and post-16 all with links to the National Curriculum. We're pleased to discuss any specific ideas or needs you have to help you get the most from your visit to Dunster Castle and Gardens.
