Nunney Castle is a striking and picturesque moated castle, wich was built in the 1370s. Bring your little knights and princesses here to explore the still numerous walls and features of the castle, plus take some great photos and have a run around or a picnic in the grounds. Lovely!

Kids will love it, because it has all the key qualities of what we imagine a castle to have: a keep, a moat with fish in it, big thick walls and towers on each corner which they can also have a good look inside. It is a good idea to keep an eye on the kids while they are near the moast as it is quite deep!

You can learn the history of the castle fom the information boards that are placed around the building so it's a great spot for either secret schooling or some extra credit work to support historical subjects at school.

Although it is now techincally a ruin, you can still see a lot of the original structure and be amazed at how our ancestors managed to build it so long ago. Try and get the kids to consider how they'd construct something like this without machinery, then set them to it when you get home with the bricks and blocks!

The castle is perhaps not worth going out of your way for, but if you are already in the area, it is a great place to spend an hour or so with the kids to stretch your legs and get the munchkins' imaginations running.
