Built as a home by Sir Richard Le Scrope 600 years ago, Bolton Castle, near Leyburn, is one of the best-preserved medieval castles in the country and
remains under the private ownership of Lord Bolton, a direct descendant of Sir Richard. The castle’s diverse programme of events celebrate its history, its gardens and its inhabitants. A series of Living History weekends throughout the summer bring the attraction’s story to life: learn how to defend yourself from a marauder, try your hand at one-to-one combat and find out what life was really like while the castle was under siege. Events also showcase the daily tasks that kept the castle functioning as both a home and a garrison (when staff had to
cook for a hundred or so hungry knights). From outdoor theatre to medieval music, to peaceful tours of the gardens and fantastic falconry displays, the open season at Bolton Castle has something for everyone. To book your group visit call
