Join Sir Stephen de Blenerhayset and Lady Eleanor as they show you all of the good bits of the “high life” of the Middle Ages! Stephen loves to swing his sword around and is always looking for budding new squires to join his retinue. While Stephen is galloping around in search of adventure Eleanor is the real one in charge! She keeps the castle going and if anyone wants anything done they make sure to request an audience with Eleanor! When she’s not solving quandaries and quarrels, Eleanor loves to spend time in the garden and practice making medicines and potion.

Throughout the day immerse yourself in three exciting shows, knight school, medieval dance and castle siege.

Visit the games arena to play some medieval games and challenge your friends and family to a traditional challenge.
