Knights & Princesses School


Throughout the summer holidays kids can experience what it was like to grow up and serve in a royal household in medieval times at Knights & Princesses School.

Suitable for children ages 6-12 approximately, classes include lots of hands-on activities to keep them entertained. Children are encouraged to come in costume to really enter the spirit of the event. These free classes last for around 40 minutes and take place daily at 11:30, 12:30, 14:00, 15:00 and 16:00.

Knights in training learn how to prepare and protect armour and discover the best way to arm and disarm their master before battle. Princesses are shown the correct way to give a proper and perfect curtsey.

At the end of each session, children will take part in a fun Have a Go Jousting activity before receiving their ‘Knight School Certificate’ and being officiated as knights and princesses of Hever.

Knights & Princesses School takes place daily from 22 July – 28 August and is included in normal Hever Castle admission prices; spaces should be booked on arrival at the Information Centre.
