King of the Castle
There is medieval fun at Oxford Castle Unlocked this summer, when the King Arthur legends will be brought to life with a series of activities for all the family.
Throughout the school holidays, families will be challenged to a quest around the castle as they complete their guided tour, seeking clues to help them solve a ‘King of the Castle’ themed trail. Arts and crafts in the prison wing will then keep the children entertained as parents enjoy a chance to absorb the fascinating history contained in the exhibition area, with compelling stories of castle characters and events from its 1000 year timespan.
Weekends from Saturday 22 July to Monday 29 August will see the castleyard commandeered by knights who will invite children to enrol in their Knight School and learn the techniques and tricks required to protect the castle from its foes! Two 30 minute sessions of Knight School will run each day, at 11.30am and 2.30pm, with pre-booking recommended.
Open daily from 10am (tours available every 20 minutes). Prices: Adult £10.95, Concession £9.25, Child £7.75, Family £35
