Self Guided Tour

21st century touch-screen technology, 3D models and discovery drawers are among the exciting techniques that will connect visitors to tales of siege and warfare. Students will love the dazzling array of computer generated animations and ghostly projections as they travel back through time. In the busy courtyard a blacksmiths forge and scenes from a seventeenth century siege can be experienced. The sights, scenes and sounds of King John’s Castle and its environs all combine to recreate the atmosphere of the era.
