Educating Arthur

Life was very different for children at the turn of the 16th century, and even more so if you happened to be the heir to the throne!  In our half-term trail, discover the subjects that Prince Arthur (Henry VIII’s older brother) would have been taught when he lived at Ludlow Castle, to prepare him to become king (sadly he died at the age of 15 so never did become king).  The trail includes puzzles to complete as you explore the castle ruins.

Saturday 25th May to Sunday 2nd June. 10.00am – 5.00pm (last entry at 4.15pm)

Free trail (admission charges apply)

Suitable for children aged 7+ (or younger with help from adults)

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
