We went to Tamworth castle in a last minute decision. We were visiting the nearby playground with our children (4 &7 years old). We had a fantastic time! It's a beautiful place and really interesting but what made it even better for us was that it even managed to entertain our boys!! The dressing up areas and things to do... More

We came to Tamworth Castle to add to our extensive castle list of visits, something we enjoy. We knew the castle was not large, but when we came from our visit we were surprised what a little gem it actually is. The staff were excellent, knowledgeable and very friendly. But what i enjoyed was the whole experience, and what was... More

Having forgotten my initial visit to this well preserved Castle from the age of 8, all the memories came flooding through upon today's visit. Not knowing a lot about Castles or much about the area, I did my homework and the staff certainly know their stuff 😊 A bit of a last minute decision but a well made one. Easily... More

The staff are amazing and very knowledgeable. I have been here as a family and also as a Brownie group and both times the staff interacted with us. They are very enthusiastic and love to tell you about the history.

We had a brilliant time searching for Santa and at £20 for a family of 4 excellent value. The kids (and adults!) were engaged for the whole hour and a half. Staff were brilliant in their roles of a Victorian Christmas and the time with Santa at the end was really special. Couldn't recommend it enough and will be going... More

Had an amazing afternoon at the castle looking for Santa. Hosted by Arthur throughout the castle in our search. We danced, we sung, we laughed and learnt lots about the castle. All characters were fantastic especially the singing ladies we found asleep in bed!!! Our trail eventually led us to a lovely Santa who spent time with every child chatting... More
