Alnwick Castle is one of Britain's most historic and iconic castles - making learning outside of the classroom a memorable and exciting day out.

At Alnwick Castle we appreciate the value of learning outside of the classroom. For further information regarding our educational programme, please click here


The ethos of our education programme is to provide an environment where the pupils use the skills and knowledge they have acquired at school whilst working towards their target Key Stages. As such, they are encouraged to use their imaginations, examine and resolve questions, and of course, have fun. 


The workshops are led by our costumed historical interpreters. Each workshop, depending on the subject chosen, will consist of an interactive session, performance, or a practical or artefact handling element. 


Workshops are designed with flexibility so they can be delivered at the right level for the age group. However, we have also developed workshops that can be tailored to suit the individual key stages required.
