For those that were a little disappointed that Nottingham Castle wasn't a real castle, I thought that we would go and visit a proper castle ... at Tamworth :-)
Step back in time and experience life in a Medieval Castle. Explore Tudor and Stuart chambers, grand Victorian reception rooms and the magnificent late Medieval Great Hall.
Tamworth Castle promises a brilliant day out. There is plenty to see and even more to do with hands on displays and costumes. The Castle Keep is set in extensive pleasure grounds in the centre of Tamworth's historic market town.
Over the centuries the Medieval motte and bailey Castle has welcomed royal visitors, key figures in history and nobility.
With over 900 years of history a tour of Tamworth Castle is a journey through time. Visitors are invited to explore 15 rooms, each offering an insight into the changes in the Castle's fortunes and those of its inhabitants over the centuries.
Admission Adults - £7.00
If more than 12 go, the admission fee will be reduced to £6.
We will arrange a meeting point in Derby, where we can meet up and travel together. The time for meeting here will be 10.45am.
If however you would prefer to make your own way there, that's fine. We will meet outside the Castle at Midday (subject to traffic between Derby and Tamworth!)
I will e-mail out more details to those attending nearer the time.
