School groups at Rockingham Castle
A school trip to Rockingham Castle provides a unique experience that could not be replicated in a school environment. Our Castle tour usually covers all aspects of the Castle’s history as appropriate to the ages of the group. However, we tailor our tours to your needs therefore special emphasis on a particular period can be arranged.
Our knowledgeable guides take the tours; many of them are former teachers who understand the particular needs of children.
Guided tours of the Castle are given to groups of up to 25 children at a time, with not less than 1 adult for every 15 children.
One adult free with every 15 children
