Enjoy legendary children's days out! As always at Fort Nelson, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the Easter, Summer and half term holidays will be action-packed children's days. Each day has exciting things to see, do and even take home with you! Watch! Exciting things to see and watch, from magnificent bird of prey flying displays to ferocious fighting warriors to fantastic flea circuses. Have a go! Don't just sit back - why not have a go? Enjoy fun activities, from commando assault courses to medieval-style junior jousting to pirate treasure hunts. Toys to take home! Every activity day has a special workshop where children can get busy with paper, card, glitter and glue, and create unique toys to take home - from hobbyhorses and flying kites to jousting helmets and shiny armour. A small charge of œ2 per child is made towards the cost of materials. For a full listing of all of our events, including battle spectaculars, living history displays, dramas and big-gun firings, go to our website, click "What's On" and look at Fort Nelson.
Now that we are in autumn everyone is looking for things to do with the kids to celebrate this lovely colourful season. Here we have some great ideas, and they don't all involve being cooped up indoors! Get out and enjoy the cooler, fresh air and the crunchy leaves under foot - you can always return home afterwards for a hot chocolate and a snuggle
