There really couldn’t be a better place to enjoy half-term than at Tamworth Castle. We also have everything you need to plan some great days out for Easter and to celebrate St George’s Day.
Tamworth Castle has wonderful intact rooms that can be explored with displays that take you on a journey through the great historic periods from Saxon to Victorian times.
Get some historical hands-on experiences and make some great family memories!
Dragon Hunt | Saturday 16th February to Friday 22nd February

Whilst playing hide and seek, Tamworth Castle’s resident dragon Ruby and her brother Hafgrim have gone missing. They now appear to be lost!
Visitors are invited to come and help search for our dragons, as well as picking up some dragon facts along the way.

Easter Egg Hunt | Saturday 13th April to Sunday 28th April
10.30am – 3.00pm
Family fun for Easter with our ‘egg-stra’ special egg hunt. Ruby the Castle Dragon has disguised her eggs so that the dastardly dragon hunter will be unable to detect them. As an extra precaution Hafgrim, Ruby’s brother, has hidden the eggs and now cannot find them!
Come along and join in this fun hunt but don’t forget to record the egg locations on the quiz sheet – as you will hand in the sheet to receive a small prize! All-in-all a fun event and egg-citing way to explore the Castle!
Please note: visitors will not be able to find Ruby as she will be too busy looking for her eggs!
Admission: Adults (16yrs+) £7.50, OAP (65yrs +) £6.50, Child (5-15yrs) £5.00, Child (2-4yrs) £3.00, Under 2 yrs free. No Pre-booking necessary.
