Throughout the summer holidays kids can experience what it was like to grow up and serve in a royal household in medieval times at Hever Castle’s Knights & Princesses School.
Suitable for children ages 6-12 (approximately), these free classes last for around 40 minutes and take place daily at 11:30am, 12:30, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. Children are encouraged to come in costume to really get into the spirit of their training session.
Knights will learn how to prepare and protect their armour and discover the best way to arm and disarm their master before battle. Princesses are shown the correct way to give a proper and perfect curtsey.
At the end of each session, children take part in a fun Have a Go Jousting activity before receiving their ‘Knight School Certificate’ and being officiated as knights and princesses of Hever.
