Knights & Princesses School at Hever Castle

Knights & Princesses School at Hever Castle

21 July – 27 August

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.

Knights & Princesses School takes place daily from 21st July – 27th August and is included in normal Hever Castle admission rates; spaces should be booked on arrival at the Information Centre.

  • £14.50 (adult)
