JOIN NORTHUMBERLAND’S FINEST MEDIEVAL KNIGHTS FOR A FASCINATING ARMOURY DEMONSTRATION OR meet A MEDIEVAL PRINCESS AND LEARN WHAT LIFE WAS REALLY LIKE FOR ROYAL MEDIEVAL WOMEN!

Join the Alnwick Castle Knight school this August and see if you have what it takes to become the next Harry Hotspur, world-famous Knight! 
Young squires will travel back in time to the medieval period to discover what life was like for budding young Knights. Learn about the armour and weapons of the time, meet real-life Knights, and witness live sword fighting demonstrations.

We will also have 'Princess School' to learn what it is like to be a real medieval Princess - the clothes, the fashion, the beauty tips and job description... it might not be as glamorous as you think!


These activities are fully interactive experience for all ages. Talks and demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day. Please check the 'What’s On' board when you arrive for more details.
