HALF DAY (approx. 2 hours)

Find out all you ever needed to know about building castles in our fun and interactive session. Discover why castles were built, what they were built out of, and why.

Investigate how they were defended and attacked, and find out how and why they changed and got bigger.

This involves a tour of our Norman keep, spectacular views of the Ribble Valley and the chance to build your own motte-and- bailey castle. Learn about castle life and the types of people that made their homes behind castle walls.
