Castles & Stately Homes

Castles & Stately Homes

Unleash your little darlings’ inner royalty and give those £79.99 MUST-have polyester princess dresses an airing. Get thee to a castle!

They can run around the battlements, shooting Granddad with a real life stick gun. They can look for the bed that hid the Princess’s pea. They can find turrets to ‘let down their hair’. Or they can spend the whole time moaning that they can’t find Elsa and they don’t know why they have to spend the whole day looking at old stuff when it’s clear that none of the animals speak and the tour guide doesn’t even know the words to ‘Let It Go’!

If you’re lucky, and you wish very very hard, there might be a prince on white steed willing to whisk you away to a land of waterfalls and star-light sing-alongs. Failing that, you’ll have to listen to the 8 year old regaling tales of beheadings and treason plots all the way home in your clapped out old ‘family car’, that you hate but can’t replace because you’ve spent all your money on kids ballet lessons and Fruit Shoots. Just me? I think not.

Send us your favourite medieval hangouts and we’ll happily add them.
