A Walk with a view

Children participating in a schools' session at Windsor Castle

Key stage 1 / Key stage 2 CASTLES  This guided walk of the Castle’s open spaces is an exciting way for children to examine Windsor’s battlements, arrow loops and towers and see for themselves the advantages of building a castle on a hill. Through role play of attacking and defending the Castle, pupils discover how this stone fortress with four-metre thick walls successfully repelled enemies of the Crown throughout the medieval period.

“Excellent and thank you for such an informative and fun walk and talk.”  Year 1 teacher
