The kids won’t want to miss this!

Meet Viking warriors, Ragnar and Ormhildhr Thorlinsdottir and allow them to entertain the children with exciting activities.

Children will learn what it is to be a Viking at the Inner Ward of Bamburgh Castle where real Vikings may have once trod. They’ll be asked to name their sword, learn sword technique, think of their own battle cry and have their photo taken with Ragnar/Ormhildhr. They will also learn how to follow ‘battlefield’ instructions and learn how things can go wrong when you don’t listen!

The session takes place at various times throughout set days in the Inner Ward. Tokens can not be pre-booked and must be purchased from the ticket office on the day. One token allows one child admission to warrior school. Tokens are £3 per child.  The session lasts approximately 20 minutes and is suitable for children age 4 upwards.

*This activity includes the use of a foam sword for the activity but this must be handed back at the end of the event
