Young Knights And Princesses Flock To Whitby Shores

Have your children ever wanted to be knights or the round table? Well nows their chance.

With Whitby continuing to be a must-visit location for those seeking a fun and friendly UK holiday destination, late July is proving to be the most exciting time for parties with younger members. Not only is there the annual beer festival to entertain the adults, Whitby Abbey will also be hosting a unique Knight and Princess School for all youngsters to get a great taste of medieval history.

Hosted by the true history experts Time Travellers Go, the week promises to kick start the summer holidays in the best way possible. Located in the beautiful ground of Whitby Abbey, this family friendly event promises to introduce children to a number of events including squire training, etiquette, storytelling, art and crafts, topped off with dressing up sessions, complete with a mini harness of knight’s armour. All events are sure to give children a unique taste of history, whilst offering a fun environment to enjoy the summer sun.

Kicking off on Monday from 11am and coming to a close 5pm on Friday, these 5 days promise to be a perfect family activity to enjoy together. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to have a swing of a sword and try on the finest princess dresses at an unmissable summer event.
