•Within the Castle Proper there is a Medieval Kitchen where visitors can prepare a feast of roasted capon and eel pie for the King's table, then gather vegetables and honey in the Castle Garden.

•Explore the Inner Bailey, with its castle forge where the smith makes iron fittings for the castle and repairs armor. Next, a visit to the Queen's Chamber, where they can try on gowns, read an Illuminated Manuscript, and experience what sleeping on a rope bed felt like.

•A trip to the Apothecary may be in order, to purchase medicinal herbs to cure the ague.

•Young squires can dress up and practice their archery and swordsmanship in order to become knights, and then sit upon an armored steed for a photo op in the stables.

•In the Throne Room, little visitors can try on a crown and sit on a throne, then learn about heraldry and coats-of-arms, and see portraits of famous kings and queens of old.
