Click to see 2016 jousting scoreboard.

Witness spectacular jousting in an authentic arena, complete with Royal Box. Jousting tournaments take place throughout the summer holidays every year when the brave Knights of Royal England return to battle it out.

Each tournament begins with a procession from the Castle forecourt when Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn lead visitors across the grounds to the Jousting Arena complete with a Royal Box and professional compere. Bring a blanket or watch the joust in style from the medieval spectator stands, available for a small cost on a first-come first-served basis at the Event Field (No pre-booking). Then choose which knights you support and cheer them to glory.

Spectators will be treated to thrilling displays of action, stunts, falls and fights as the brave knights compete for points to find the season’s champion knight. Points are awarded in competitions including riding against the quintain, riding to spear enemy heads from the ground and lancing the smallest of rings, all followed by foot combat with weapons of their choice. The highlight of the competition is the duel on horseback between two knights riding against each other on their beautiful Spanish horses at full tilt armed only with a 4-metre lance and a shield. Maximum points are scored for unseating their opponent in this dramatic finale.
