Ripley Castle, built in 1345, is full of armour, priests hiding holes and lots of great histrorical things to look at. There are also beautiful gardens and a deer park which the smalls will love and a large tropical plant collection to saunter through. Lovely!

Ripley Castle Guides have tailor-made a tour especially for children. The children will be introduced to 26 generations of fascinating Ingilby family history which will include the wild boar hunt that nearly killed King Edward III, religious persecution, the Gunpowder Plot, Oliver Cromwell being kept prisoner at gunpoint in the Library and all about eccentric ancestors plus some ghost stories!

These tours are entertaining, engaging and fun and available at 11:45 and 13:45 every Saturday and Sunday between 23rd March and 3rd November and daily during the school holidays (excluding February half term and the Christmas break).

The tour takes approximately 45 minutes and are specifically geared for children aged 5 to 16 years with their family. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
