Looking for a great family day out this summer holiday?
Join the Mary Rose team at Southsea Castle from where Henry VIII watched his beloved Mary Rose sink during the Battle of the Solent in 1545. There will be talks about the sinking of the Mary Rose, real Tudor objects to examine, storytelling, games and archery.
Black Knight Historical will host Hobby Horse Jousting where kids can dress up as medieval knights, and ride a fearsome destrier, charging down the jousting field! They also will run St. George’s Knight School where aspiring young knights can hone their skills.
Admission to the castle is free.
Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
