Medieval Playtime


4A St Martins,


This October Half Term is all about playtime at the Visitor Centre. There are medieval games galore and you can discover how children played during the time of King Richard III.

After all that play, and for those who love a bit of crafting, there’s the chance to make a peg King or Queen, or a crown! We also have dressing up – transform yourself into a medieval king, princess, or a knight with real armour and a Boar Hunt for younger visitors to enjoy.

And more!
