900 Years of History and a Great Day Out
A visit to Tamworth Castle takes you back in time and offers a perfect blend of fascinating history, regular live events and a stunningly complete building.
As you explore the Castle you can see for yourself the maze of intact rooms, halls and chambers that still echo with events from Saxon beginnings, Norman dynasties, Tudor grandeur and great family influences.
Come and enjoy the all-year-round events and activities that keep families of all ages entertained and enthralled both inside the Castle and outside in the wonderful landscaped grounds alongside the River Tame.
Get Your Hands on Some Living History
No shuffling around a quiet museum or staring at an empty ruin here!
Tamworth Castle really does bring history to life with fun re-enactments and superbly staged scenes from the past with regular Living History Days.
Did they really live like this?
Why not ask them yourself as families and servants cook, entertain or eat in period-style right in front of you?
Active history doesn’t stop there with a range of events happening during half-term and school holidays including children’s drop-in workshops – great fun and they’ll love it!
