The Knights used to be part of a ride called "Knight Ride". I was sorry to see that the ride is gone, and the knights have been re-located to another location. Easy to see from the main road.

The statues were yarn-bombed again for the centenary of the Armistice of World War I, with a big woven poppy being added to the leading knight's shield. Now, in December, they have a fresh set of Santa hats added instead. As sculptures go, I think...More

The knights looked very different for Christmas 2017. Someone had yarn-bombed them, adding red and white woolly Santa Claus hats to all three of them. They looked very jolly. Messing in any permanent way with someone else's art is a sin, but yarn-bombing is fine,...More

Great wee assets to the town. Touristy type knights. Kids love them and loved having their pictures taken with the steel knights

Very Lifelike Sculpture of The Knights - although as they are some way from the Castle have obviously escaped. Perhaps they should have been situated on the Green outside the Castle?

Had just been to the Castle and after walking down the promenade, you will come across these characters across the road. Make a great photo shoot and if you have any young knights in the family they will love it

Statues in totally unusual place. Should be closer to castle. Nothing to attract you to them. Nice enough statues, also with pokestop for kids...lol

Situated at the far end of the Marine Gardens. Nice addition to the town and contributing to the history of Carrickfergus.
