On the weekend of the 22nd & 23rd of June, the peace will be broken at Hampton Court Castle by hundreds of re-enactors descending on Herefordshire. They will be providing two full days’ excitement and colour recreating events from throughout our history.
In the morning, you can experience the serenity of Hampton Court Castle with its beautiful gardens and imposing castle, followed in the afternoon by the noise and excitement of sword, musket, cannon and pike.
There will be a living history camp throughout the day, portraying various aspects of 17th century life.
You can also visit the medieval encampment throughout the day, including a chance to have a go at archery with a longbow.
The kids haven’t been forgotten either: after the main battle they can meet and train with the soldiers and maybe have a go at drumming.
Admission to the Garden, Parkland and all the day’s events is just £8.00 for adults, £7.00 for senior citizens, £5.00 for children (free entry for children under 5) and £25.50 for a family (2 adults and up to 3 children): superb value for a great family day out! (Castle entrance is not included in this price.)
