SUITABLE FOR

Children

Myths, legends and monsters of English folklore await you at Dover Castle this half term. Be greeted by the ghoulish guide who will tell tales of ghostly goings on at Dover Castle. Try your hand at becoming a monster hunter with our range of hands on training activities, and meet the comedy castle rat who will entertain you with stories and songs of his explorations of the castle. Don’t miss the fantastical dragon and grim reaper puppets prowling around the keep yard and watch in awe as the shadow puppet theatre creates magical shapes in the darkness.

Activities and shows will be at select times of the day and are subject to weather conditions.
