Be King or Queen of the North this half-term at Bamburgh Castle

There’s a whole host of fun to lay siege to at Bamburgh Castle this February half-term.

England’s finest coastal castle has lots to do for all ages including roarsome story telling with Bamburgh’s resident dragon – Hope – and the chance for you to be crowned King or Queen of the North.

Famous for being the real Last Kingdom of Bebbanburg, visitors can step back in time to medieval times and meet Viking warrior Ragnar Lundgren.

Find out about the Uhtred the Bold who appears in Bernard Cornwell’s Last Kingdom books and Netflix series and don’t miss the chance to be crowned King or Queen of the North by Ragnar himself, upon Bamburgh Castle’s unique stone throne.

Hope the dragon will be meeting children inside the castle’s special story telling hut where little lords and ladies can listen to Hope’s spellbinding tales of dragons, castles, kings and queens.

Dragon-themed activity books featuring quizzes, activities and a trail to follow around the castle’s crenelations, cannons and battlements will also be available to purchase for children to have fun and learn more about the castle’s 3000 year-old history.

And for those looking for a relaxing way to brighten up a February day, award-winning florist Sharon Wright is running spring wreath-making workshops for visitors to craft their own sustainable, living wreath with early spring flowers, seasonal foliage, buds and blossom. Suitable for adults and children aged eight and over.
