Bring history to life with a visit to Bodiam Castle for your school or college pupils. We have a range of activities to cater for all ages and abilities.

Make history fun on a learning day at the castle. We offer activities from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 4, personally tailored to your group and in tune with National Curriculum initiatives.

Early Years learning - Age 6 and below

We have three activity sessions for younger children.

Sir Edward's Feast

A fun role-play session that transports children back to Medieval times. Includes castle tour, dressing-up and an introduction to Medieval food, drink, music and games.

A Knight's Tale

This is the story of Ralph. Learn about knights and armour as you listen to a story about a boy aspiring to become a knight. Piece together a small suit of armour, and then try some real pieces on! Short tour included.

The Bodiam Household

Be introduced to the people who lived and worked in the castle. Learn about the different things the Dallingridge family would have done on a daily basis, and discover the roles of the people who worked for them. Tour and dressing up included.

Key Stages 1, 2 & 3 - Ages 6 and above

We have two sessions for older children.

Take a Guided Tour

Was the castle, envisioned by the infamous Sir Edward, built for defence or comfort? Learn about the castle’s many attack and defence features through the eyes of an attacking army, while also discovering the many hidden luxuries this 14th-century home held.

Try our 'Armed & Dangerous' session

Our aptly named armour session, 'Armed & Dangerous' takes a look at medieval warfare. Take an inside look at a medieval army, at their armour, combat skills and code of conduct before trying on some of our armour collection.
